An autopsy report shows that a teenager found dead in the Ocholocknee River did drown and it confirms that he is the same young man who tried to outrun deputies Saturday night.

Eighteen-year-old Becari Warren's body was found by dive teams Thursday about 100 yards downstream from the Highway 90 bridge.

The Leon County Sheriff's Office released autopsy results Friday which confirm that Warren drowned. He was fleeing from deputies investigating a purse snatching Saturday night when he disappeared along the river bank.

His body surfaced five days later.
