ELK CITY, Idaho -- Idaho Fish and Game officials say a seasonal employee who was found dead near Elk City last week appears to have died of natural causes.
Fish and Game spokesman Mike Keckler says the Idaho County coroner ruled out drowning as the cause of death for 26-year-old Joshua Todd Huju of Sioux City, Iowa. Huju was found by another agency employee at the Crooked River fish trap in central Idaho on June 28. The employee pulled Huju from the water and began CPR, but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
Keckler tells The Lewiston Tribune that the full autopsy report, including toxicology tests, are expected to take about a month to complete.
