    “An autopsy is set for Thursday to determine if Williams suffered any injuries during the fall that may have contributed to his drowning.”

    Seriously? What difference would it make? The cause of death is drowning and the manner of death is accidental. An autopsy in a case like this is unnecessary and pointless. So why not let the dead rest in peace? Why waste property taxpayers’ money?
