Coeur d’Alene Press / 2.16.16

COEUR d’ALENE — Nearly seven months after the drowning of 16-year-old Reggie Nault on Lake Coeur d’Alene, no charges have been filed related to the death and the Boundary County Prosecutor’s Office is reviewing the case.

Nault, who was a member of the Coeur d’Alene High varsity baseball team, was with two male juvenile friends on July 21, 2015, when he either fell or jumped from a moving boat without a life jacket, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office.

Nault’s body was recovered from the lake on Aug. 3. Alcohol intoxication was a condition related to Nault’s accidental death and the cause was asphyxia due to a freshwater drowning, according to a Kootenai County coroner’s report released on Oct. 23.

The KCSO forwarded its investigative report on the case to the Kootenai County Prosecutor’s Office on Jan. 14. The KCSO is not commenting further on the case until a decision is made by a prosecutor on whether to file charges, nor is it discussing whether it made any recommendations to the prosecutor on charges.
