Autopsy: Ex-White House Chef Drowned

The missing former White House chef, whose body was found in the New Mexico mountains, died from drowning, police said Tuesday. Medical examiners saw no signs of foul play and ruled the death of 61-year-old Walter Scheib as accidental. The circumstances surrounding his death were not immediately known. Authorities found Scheib’s body on Sunday off the Yerban Canyon hiking trail in northern New Mexico after a weeklong search. The former chef was last seen June 13, when he set off on a hiking trip in the area. He served as executive chef under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
