The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports on the preliminary investigation into the death of Franco Garcia, the BC student whose body was found in the Chestnut Hill Reservoir yesterday morning:
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has not yet ruled on cause or manner of death pending further toxicological testing, some of it at the Garcia family's request, but the examination did not reveal any broken bones or other significant injury. Those observations, along with cash and other personal effects retrieved from Mr. Garcia’s clothing, are consistent with an accidental fall into the water. The investigation into the young man’s final hours remains ongoing, however, and State Police detectives assigned to the case still urge anyone with information on his activities during the early morning hours of Feb. 22 to call 617-727-8817, ext. 1, or Boston College Police at 617-552-4440.
