Bermuda authorities provided insight into their ongoing investigation of the mysterious circumstances pertaining to the death of a Pennsylvania student athlete’s death, at a press conference on Thursday, citing that the cause of death was likely due to a fall though officials are “open-minded to all evidence” from witnesses.

Mark Dombroski, a freshman rugby player at St. Joseph University in Philadelphia, traveled with his fellow teammates, and relatives, to the island for a weekend tournament.

According to surveillance footage, Dombroski was last seen roaming the premises of Fort Prospect, by himself early Sunday morning, seemingly engrossed in his phone. Prior to his appearance at Fort Prospect, Dombroski had been hanging at a local bar, the Dog House, with his teammates and left approximately around midnight.

A relative reported Dombroski’s disappearance Sunday morning at 9:39 a.m. A search party conducted by Domobroski’s brothers and the police discovered Dombroski’s body, at the base of the 35-foot high cliff, mid-afternoon of the following day.

Both Bermuda Police Service superintendent, Sean Field-Lament, and an independent autopsy examiner Dr. Christopher Milroy, the director of forensic pathology at the Ottawa Hospital, confirmed that there is currently no evidence that insinuates the involvement of foul play.

They, however, were unable to affirm the reason why Dombroski was at Fort Prospect.  “We may not ever find out how he came to fall,” Field-Lament stated.

Neither Field-Lament nor Dr. Milroy was able to divulge supplementary details due to the proceeding nature of the investigation.
