5YO’s Death Due To Drowning

Preliminary autopsy results are consistent with drowning in the case of a 5-year-old boy who was trapped underwater following an Aug. 28 car accident on Fernan Lake Road. The autopsy on Evan Deshazer did not reveal any internal injuries, said Lt. Stu Miller of the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office still is waiting for toxicology results, he said. Evan Deshazer’s sister, River, 1, and his parents, Sarah and Michael Deshazer, survived the accident in which the family’s Dodge Durango slid off Fernan Lake Road into the lake. The parents were able to escape, but both children were trapped underwater for about 15 minutes, authorities said/Alison Boggs, SR. More here.
