Likely cause of death determined in case of missing Mounds View man


Henry McCabe, the 32-year-old employee of the Minnesota Department of Revenue who vanished over Labor Day weekend, likely died from fresh water drowning.

Writing on its Facebook page, the New Brighton Dept. of Public Safety on Thursday released the results of the autopsy report by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner. The post added the case remains an "open and active" investigation.

The Pioneer Press noted when McCabe's body was found Nov. 2 in Rush Lake in New Brighton by a kayaker, police said the death did not appear to be suspicious and no signs of trauma or foul play were found.

KSTP's story added the lake where the body was found is within minutes of McCabe’s Mounds View home, and is in the area where cellphone pinging had placed him.

McCabe hadn’t been seen since Labor Day after he was dropped off at a Holiday gas station in Fridley, according to police.

The Liberian community in the Twin Cities metro had set up several searches in the northeast metro after McCabe vanished.
