KILL DEVIL HILLS The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Va., reported the North Carolina
medical examiner's office first released a report Friday saying an
autopsy and review of photos by marine biologists led experts to
decide 60-year-old Richard Snead died from accidental drowning.
But a few hours later, officials said another researcher
reviewing the death disagreed, saying it looked like shark bites
killed the man.
Officials say they will now do a final review of the death that
could take weeks.
Snead's body washed ashore on the Outer Banks about four days
after he was last seen taking a late night swim in the ocean.
