WEST GLACIER, MT (WHTC) - Investigators looking into the death of a 19-year-old Hudsonville man at the Glacier National Park in Montana this past summer say that he apparently drowned after falling into cold water. That was the conclusion of a full autopsy done on the body of Jakson Kreiser, who went missing weeks after beginning a job at that park, and whose remains surfaced in September, about two and a half months after his disappearance. The Flathead County Coroner’s Office believes that he likely died of drowning, with a secondary cause of hypothermia, after slipping while trying to cross a water course created by snow field drainage during a hike in one of the park’s more remote areas.
