Autopsy results have been released for missing Jackson man Dau Mabil who was found dead in the Pearl River back in April nearly 60 miles away from where he disappeared.

According to the State Medical Examiner’s Office, Mabil’s cause of death was drowning. However, the examiner, Dr. Ariane Robison, could not determine how the 37-year-old drowned.

“Based on the decadent’s past medical history, the circumstances surrounding the death, scene findings, autopsy results, and ancillary study outcomes, the cause of death is drowning,” Robison wrote in the report released Friday.

“The state of postmortem decomposition of the remains and a lack of comprehensive contextual information precluded a conclusive determination about the manner of death.”

Robison added that there were no signs of trauma, injuries, or disease that contributed to Mabil’s death. She said postmortem toxicology did reveal a presence of ethanol in the decomposition fluid, noting that if additional investigative details emerge in the future, the case will be reevaluated and reassessed accordingly.

Mabil was last seen alive on March 25 when he left his home in the historic Belhaven Neighborhood to go on a walk. His body was found on April 13, with his disappearance and death resulting in turmoil between family members that ended up going to court.

On May 2, a Hinds County chancery judge ruled that an independent autopsy could be performed following the state’s examination. Bul Mabil, Dau’s brother, will be responsible for the cost and direction of the autopsy.
