The medical examiner's office says an autopsy Thursday was inconclusive pending further investigation.

The Coast Guard suspended its search for Brown on Sunday. It said five other people aboard the vessel named "Three's Company" saw Brown resurface once. They lost sight of him while trying to throw him a floatation device about a mile offshore.

Brown wasn't wearing a life jacket.
