According to theĀ Glenn County Sheriff’s Office, the autopsy report for Brett Olson’s death reported that the cause of death was accidental. The report stated that Olson had drowned with alcohol and cocaine in his system.

Olson’s blood alcohol content registered as .28 percent, but it was noted that it could have been closer to .23 percent at the time of his death. The legal limit is .08 percent.

According to the report, there were no signs of trauma on the body or any other indications that would make the death anything other than an accident.

Olson, a 2010 graduated of Acalanes, went missing over Labor Day weekend during a river float near Chico State University. He was found a week later by fishermen.

    Considering this is an opinion page, before anyone gets irate about my opinion,think twice & wait an hour.
    I think high schools should have a class in responsible drinking. Entirely to many young people die from alcohol related causes. Just because drinkings against the law, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Young people died from alcohol related causes 50 years ago. Nothings changed, except the grieving parents & friends are now on color TV.
