An autopsy Sunday turned up no evidence of foul play in connection with the death of a man whose body was found Saturday afternoon in a retention pond behind Destin Commons.

The Okaloosa/Walton medical examiner says the autopsy findings are consistent with drowning; however, an official cause of death will not be confirmed until toxicology reports are returned.

The body of the 26-year old white male was discovered face down in the water, about 15 feet offshore.

Investigators with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office have been able to determine the man’s identity, but his name will not be released until next-of-kin are located and notified.
