Authorities say teenager found in Iowa pond drowned

GRANGER (KWWL) -

Authorities confirm a Des Moines teen, whose body was found in a pond last month, drowned.

Sam Kemp Jr.'s official cause of death was freshwater drowning.

Polk County Medical Examiner Greg Schmunk says the 17-year-old had alcohol and marijuana in his system when he died, and there were no signs of physical trauma.

Authorities do not suspect foul play.

Kemp's body was found by law enforcement in a Granger pond Dec. 17.

His family reported him missing days earlier after he failed to return from a Dec. 12 party at a large duplex near the pond.
