Refinery workers had found the body in an irrigation ditch near the refinery. Sheriff Mike Linder says it appears the body had been there for an extended period of time. Linder confirmed that the person was an adult male, but coroners had not yet determined an age or identification. Linder says an autopsy determined the man drowned, and that there were no signs of foul play.
