Death Of Man In Creek Ruled Accidental

The Ross County Coroner says a man whose body was found in Paint Creek two months ago died as the result of an accident. 

Officials say construction workers found the body of 39-year-old Joshua M. Whitaker August 14th.  The victim's friends had reported him missing the week before. 

A post-mortem examination earlier this month found traces of alcohol and amphetamines in Whitaker's body.
