PAOLA, Kan. — Autopsy results indicate Mark Selbee, 45, of Leawood, Kan., died of drowning. Selbee was on his boat at Hillsdale Lake with his two oldest children on Saturday.

Selbee’s children told first responders their father dove into the water to retrieve part of a water gun they were playing with. Selbee reportedly swam a short distance and turned around to come back when his head went under water and he did not return.

Selbee’s body was located Sunday evening approximately 25 feet below water. Preliminary autopsy results indicate Selbee died from drowning.
