While the MSHP preliminary incident report online indicated that Wilson's death was Troop F's first drowning in October and its 11th overall for the year, the autopsies of Miller and Wilson will determine whether these incidents were drownings or whether the individuals were deceased before entering the water.

No foul play is suspected in either of the recent occurrences of deceased individuals found floating in Lake of the Ozarks.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Scott White, there was no indication of foul play in either cases.
