Los Angeles, Aug 12 (IANS) The body of British model Tali Lennox’s boyfriend Ian Jones has been found, police said, after he went missing following a kayaking accident on Hudson River.
The couple’s boat capsized while they were kayaking over the weekend, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“The results of the autopsy revealed no injuries or trauma to Jones’ body, and the findings are consistent with drowning,” People magazine quoted Dutchess County sheriff department’s Captain John Watterson as saying.
“There were no signs of criminal conduct or foul play found, and toxicology tests were performed. However the results of those tests won’t be known for several weeks.
“The search for Jones has now officially ended, and at this time his death is considered to be an accidental drowning with no criminal charges expected,” Watterson added.
Although police officers do not yet know whether Jones had alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of the accident, Lennox is said to have appeared ‘under the influence’ when interviewed shortly afterwards.
The role of alcohol in the capsizing is under investigation.
Sherron Jones said that although her son Ian, who was just days away from completing three years probation for threatening to kill flight attendants on a flight, had been involved in alcohol-related incidents in the past, he had been sober for four years before his death.
The memorial for Jones will take place in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
