The death of a 20-year-old CTC student who was found dead while on South Padre Island for Spring Break back in March has been ruled an accident.

We have received the autopsy report for Jordan Britten, who was found dead in a marshy area of the island on March 26.

The autopsy report says he died of drowning and immersion hypothermia. The pathologist also found drugs in his system. Investigators say they found narcotics in his abandoned car.

Britten was attending the Ultimate Music Experience Concert at Schlitterbahn on South Padre Island when he was reported missing by his family after the friends he went with returned home to Killeen without him.
