Drowning Suspected in Man's Death; Body Found in Lampe Park

Posted: Updated:

Douglas County deputies say drowning may have killed a 24-year-old man found Monday morning in a creek in Lampe Park in Gardnerville.

Deputies say a park ranger found the body of 24-year-old William Sheerin in the creek. 

Deputies say store receipts showed Sheerin bought alcohol and cigarettes Sunday night and may have contributed to his death, but an autopsy and toxicology reports will help determine an exact cause of death. Authorities say no foul play is suspected.

If you have any information on this case, call Secret Witness at 775-782-7463. Your information will remain anonymous.
