The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner has ruled the death of a Minnesota native whose body was found nearly a month after he disappeared as an accident.

Gilbertson's family organized a search party and his body was found Jan. 13 along the South Platte River.

The autopsy report says Gilbertson died as a result of the combined effects of alcohol, hydrocodone and amphetamine "in combination with possible fresh water drowning."
