The body found Monday in Shelby County’s White Rock Park has been identified as Christopher D. Easton, the Indianapolis man who went missing at the park on Sunday evening.
Travis Stewart, a spokesman with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, says that the Shelby County Coroner’s Office positively
identified the victim during an autopsy on Tuesday. He says that the cause of death will be determined after the results of toxicology testing.
Easton’s body was found in a body of water at 11:11 a.m. on Monday by Conservation Officers and recovered by officers with the Shelbyville Fire Department. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Shelby County Coroner.
Locals describe White Rock Park, in Saint Paul, as an old rock quarry that has been turned into a paid campground site. They note that there are pockets of deep water, with cliffs, some 30 feet and higher, that people dive from.
Officials say that, along with the cause of death, autopsy results will also include a toxicology report. There has been no word as to when either result will be released, but toxicology reports usually take a few weeks to be processed.
