A 16-year-old Gurnee boy was identified Monday as the person whose body firefighters pulled from Lake Michigan Sunday morning in Waukegan.

Angel Sedano died as a result of drowning, according to preliminary autopsy results released by Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper. Toxicology results are pending.


"Our investigation, in conjunction with the Waukegan Police Department, into the details is ongoing," Cooper said. "At this time, however, no foul play is suspected."

Sedano's body was discovered about 11 a.m. Sunday by Waukegan Fire Department divers in about 15 feet of water in a harbor channel.

Firefighters first were called to the Waukegan Municipal Beach about 10:30 p.m. Saturday to assist police in the search for a missing person, later determined to be Sedano. The search was called off after about two hours and resumed Sunday morning.

"Our deepest condolences go out to the Sedano and Carranza families. This is certainly a terrible tragedy," Cooper said.
