Autopsy: Osborne Native Who Died In Maine Was Drunk

An autopsy showed that the Harvard University graduate student who fell into Portland Harbor and drowned in May just days before his graduation had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit to drive in Maine.

The Portland Press Herald reports Thursday that 31-year-old Nathan Bihlmaier had no drugs in his system, but a blood-alcohol level of 0.22 percent.

Authorities have previously called his death an accidental drowning.

Bihlmaier was celebrating his pending graduation when he was asked to leave a waterfront bar for being visibly intoxicated. His body was recovered two days after he went missing.

His wife was expecting their first child.

He was a native of Osborne, Kan., and a University of Kansas graduate.

Police say criminal charges are unlikely in the case.
