ZEANDALE, Kan. (WIBW) - The Saturday night drowning victim at Pillsbury Crossing has been identified as Anthony Bernard Strange Jr., 21, of Topeka.

Riley County Police originally received reports that Strange jumped from a cliff on the southwest side of the area and attempted to swim across. The victim eventually went under water and did not resurface.

The body was recovered by emergency personnel after about two hours of searching.

An autopsy will be conducted, but officials do not believe alcohol was a factor.
