The cause of death has been released for a 21-year-old Polish man whose body was pulled from Lake Michigan late last year after he vanished from a party at a Chicago bar, officials said.
Krzysztof Szubert, 21, died by accidental drowning, with ethanol intoxication listed as a contributing factor, FOX32 Chicago reported, citing the Cook County Medical Examiner.
