Preliminary report shows Ark. boy drowned

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A preliminary autopsy report shows the death of a 4-year-old boy whose body was found in a tributary of the Spring River in northern Arkansas was by "accidental drowning."

Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said Tuesday the Arkansas State Crime Lab report on Caleb Linn was forwarded to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office and Prosecuting Attorney Don McSpadden. Sadler says a full report with results of toxicology tests won't be ready for 30 days.

Caleb had gone with his aunt to help clear storm debris from a bridge at the Kia Kima Scout Reservation near Hardy on March 24. When five children left to return to the cabins, Caleb asked if he could follow. He was last seen at the edge of the bridge.

Searchers found him March 28.
