State park authorities were waiting Sunday for the state medical examiner's office to determine what caused the death of a kayaker near Antelope Island State Park.
Assistant Park Manager John Sullivan said Massachusetts resident James Gahran, 53, was discovered Saturday floating about a 10th of a mile from the park marina by some motorists who were leaving the island on the causeway.
Sullivan said the motorists spotted a red kayak in the water with nobody around it. They thought it odd and pulled over. They then spotted a body in the water about 100 feet away.
