LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The coroner's office says the man whose body was discovered in Beargrass Creek Tuesday died of blunt force trauma and drowning.
50-year-old James Baldwin of Louisville was pronounced dead at 4:59 p.m. Tuesday. He was riding his three-wheel bicycle on the running and riding path, came down a hill, and failed to negotiate a turn. He went off the right side of the path and dropped ten to twelve feet into Beargrass Creek.
His body was recovered in about three feet of water. He was wearing a helmet.
Authorities are not sure how long he had been in the water -- the coroner's office says it was less than two hours, but could have been as little as ten minutes.
