His body was found in the Reflection Pond on Saturday by a child fishing and a volunteer who were part of an annual during a fishing event. The kids and volunteers had to be evacuated as the body was removed from the area.
Officials from the Yakima County Coroners Office say Schreck didn't drown in the pond. His cause of death remains under investigation. Officials are waiting on toxicology reports before determining his cause of death.
