A man and his three children were found dead in a submerged car in a pond after a late night fishing trip “they died accidentally,” a medical examiner’s office said.

The bodies of Kyle Moorman, 27, and his children, Kyran Holland, one, Kyannah Holland, two, and Kyle Moorman II, five, were found on July 12 in Indianapolis.

The family died from drowning with Moorman found poisoned by acute ethanol, according to the Marion County Coroner’s Office.

The Dutch children and their father had been missing since they left for a fishing trip in the pond on the south side of Indianapolis on July 6.

Officers visited the pond on July 12 in response to a report of a dead person in the water.

A man was soon pronounced dead and a diving team later found a vehicle with the bodies of three children inside, police said at the time.

The deceased’s family and friends had offered a reward of $ 10,000 (£ 8,691) for information leading to their location.

They had searched the pond and the surrounding area for days.

Mr. Moorman’s sister, Mariah Moorman, had said that the last time she was informed of her brother’s location due to her phone signal, she was near the pond at about 12:40 am on July 7, a few hours after it was been seen.

Mr. Moorman often went fishing at night, his sister had said.

At the time he told The Indianapolis Star, “As far as we know, he was on his way here to go fishing.

“That’s what he told my sister. It’s not strange. He always does.”
