Mill Creek death ruled accidental; no autopsy planned


WALLA WALLA -- The death of Cody Miller has been ruled accidental according to Public Information Officer Tim Bennett of the Walla Walla Police Department.

Miller was found at 3:40 p.m. Thursday and transported to Providence St. Mary Medical Center. Miller was pronounced dead Saturday.

According to Bennett, Miller, who had an "elevated blood alcohol content," died from head trauma caused from falling off the Palouse Street Bridge into the Mill Creek flood channel.

"There's nothing to suggest foul play," Bennett said, adding there were no drugs or trauma other than injuries sustained from the fall.

Bennett also said no autopsy will be scheduled for Miller.
