Autopsy: Intern's death appears to be accidental

Ryan Uhre, the legislative intern from Weston whose body was discovered in an abandoned Tallahassee building last week, likely died from a fall, according the preliminary results of an autopsy released Monday.

His death appears to be an accident, Tallahassee Police said.

Investigators believe Uhre, 23, fell into the building through a second-story window. Because there was no second level, he plunged to the ground floor.

“At this time, it is believed Mr. Uhre was alone when this terrible accident occurred, but the final report will not be complete until all data is reviewed, including toxicology reports,” police wrote in a news release.

That could take another six to eight weeks.

A recent graduate of Florida State University, Uhre had stayed in Tallahassee for an internship in the office of state Rep. Richard Stark, D-Weston.

He went missing on Super Bowl Sunday.

His body was discovered several blocks away from Andrew’s Bar and Grill, the watering hole where he was last seen.
