OTSEGO - The cause of death for Joseph Brunn has been ruled an accidental drowning by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office. The Medical Examiner also says alcohol was a contributing factor in his death.

The 23-year-old man from Monticello was the subject of a massive search earlier this month, before his body was found in the Mississippi River.

He was last seen alive at about 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 3rd walking from the Boondox Bar to the Holiday Inn in Otesgo. Search crews found his body the following Thursday.
