MONTREAL (CelebrityAccess) An Ottawa teen drowned soon after leaving the Osheaga Music and Art Festival last August but there is no evidence that he was the victim of a crime, according to a report from a Quebec coroner.

“This is a traumatic death whose exact circumstances could not be determined,” Dr. Gilles Stainton said, according to the Ottawa Citzen.

Collins Obiagboso, 18, was visiting family in Montreal when he and some friends went to the festival Aug. 3. The foursome was in front of the stage when Obiagboso left the show without telling his friends and leaving behind belongings. It was the last his friends saw of him. His body was found floating in the St. Laurence River at the tip of the Île Sainte-Hélène island Aug. 6.

A post-mortem examination found no defensive or traumatic injuries or drugs, according to the Citizen.

“It was not possible to know why Mr. Obiagboso had left the show or where he had gone,” Sainton concluded.
