Authorities do not believe that foul play was involved or that this is a homicide case. The most likely cause of death would be drowning in the nearby Lake Merwin or by slipping along its rocky shore, according to Clark Counry Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Steve Shea.

The Clark County 911 Dispatch Center was notified of the find early Saturday by a resident of the campground.
