Autopsy: Le Sueur woman drowned in Minnesota River

20-year-old camper drowned

(AP) – An autopsy confirms a camper from Le Sueur drowned in the Minnesota River in south-central Minnesota.

Searchers found the body of 20-year-old Moriah Zwart on May 6, six days after she went missing while camping along the river with a 20-year-old friend.

The Free Press of Mankato reports that Dr. John Berg, the Le Sueur County medical examiner, says she had a blood alcohol level of more than 0.08 percent, the legal limit for driving, but he declined be specific.

Tests for medications or other drugs won’t come back for several weeks.

Sheriff Dave Tietz declined to give details about the investigation but says nobody has been charged or cited.

Asked if the supplier of the alcohol was part of his investigation, he replied, “possibly.”
