Autopsy inconclusive on man found in Swatara Creek

Posted: Updated:

An autopsy on the body of a 21-year-old man found in the Swatara Creek a week after he went missing did not reveal how he died.

The autopsy on Maxwell Duesterhoeft was inconclusive, and the cause of death is pending the results of toxicology tests in the next 4-6 weeks, according to a spokeswoman for the Dauphin County Coroner's Office.

Duesterhoeft's body was found Friday in the creek in East Hanover Township, Dauphin County, about a mile from where he was last seen, police said.

He had attended a party at a picnic area off Pine Road in East Hanover Township, Lebanon County a week earlier.

He was last seen in the early hours of March 22 after he removed his shoes and walked from the party to the edge of the creek, police said.
