LA CROSSE, Wis. - The La Crosse man pulled from the Black River in early July had a blood alcohol content of .323 -- more than four times the legal limit to drive, according to the final toxicology report.
The La Crosse County Medical Examiner's Office released the results on Wednesday morning.
The body of 23-year-old Shalim Augustine was pulled from the Black River in La Crosse south of the Interstate 90 bridge on July 11, just days after he was reported missing.
According to preliminary autopsy results from La Crosse Medical Examiner Timothy Candahl, Augustine died from accidental drowning. He had been reported missing after hanging out with friends who docked their boat at the landing behind Powerhouse Marine near Black River Beach.
