Medical Examiner concludes that kayaker was killed when kayak plug was “intentionally removed.”

On April 19, Vincent Viafore and his fiancée Angelika Graswald went kayaking in New York when Viafore went missing in what Graswald claimed was a kayaking accident. His body was later recovered from the Hudson River on May 23, and Graswald has been charged with killing her fiancée. Graswald contends that the medical examiner overstepped its bounds by claiming that the removal was intentional and that this conclusion could prejudice the jury.
