A man was found floating in Lake Havasu on Saturday, and the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office is working this week to identify him.

The autopsy began this Tuesday, and examination could shed light on the victim’s cause of death and possibly his identity. County employees expect the results of the autopsy to be assessed as soon as today.

According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, the victim was found fully clothed, floating face down at a boat rental business on the 1300 block of McCulloch Boulevard. The victim was wearing shoes at the time of his death, the report said, and no signs of foul play or trauma were found during the department’s investigation. No identification was found on the victim’s body.

Sheriff’s deputies described the victim as being between 66 and 70 inches tall, about 200 pounds, with dark graying hair. He was believed to be 40 to 50 years old.

Medical examination is common in cases of drowning, according to county officials.
