Medical Examiner rules in death of fisherman drowned in Housatonic

The death of one of the two fishermen who went missing in the Housatonic River last week has been deemed an accidental drowning.  The state medical examiner’s office has ruled the death of 23-year-old Johnny Sanchez as accidental.  The Chief Medical Examiner says the formal identification of the other man is still pending, though authorities have said he was 35-year old Wilson Pacheco.  The pair were fishing on Bleachery Dam in New Milford last Wednesday night when one fell into the river. The other tried to rescue him, but both were swept away by the current.  The body of Sanchez was found Friday morning, Pacheco was found Saturday.
