An Iowa man whose body was found in a Mills County lake last month died from drowning. Autopsy results released just this week showing that when 19-year-old Derik Bolton disappeared the night of April second during a bachelor party near Glenwood, his blood-alcohol was twice the legal limit. Searchers pulled his body from Pony Creek Lake nine days later, and Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation took the case, to see whether any foul play was involved. The autopsy says the cause of his death was drowning, but a Mills County prosecutor says once all the facts of the case are in, she may try to get charges filed against whoever provided alcohol to minors including Bolton at the party.
