Tali Lennox, the artist daughter of singer Annie Lennox, fell to pieces on Monday when she learned that her boyfriend, Ian Jones, was found dead in the Hudson River on Monday. It was Saturday that the couple's kayak capsized in upstate New York. A passing boater saved Tali Lennox, but Jones was nowhere to be seen.

The county medical examiner performed an autopsy on Tali Lennox's boyfriend on Tuesday.

"The autopsy has revealed no injuries or trauma to Mr. Jones' body, and the findings are consistent with drowning," Captain John Watterson of the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office said in a press release. "There were no signs of criminal conduct or foul play found, and toxicology tests were performed however the results of those tests won't be known for several weeks. The search for Mr. Jones has now officially ended, and at this time his death is considered to be an accidental drowning with no criminal charges expected.

Neither Tali Lennox nor Ian Jones wore life preservers while kayaking.

Tali Lennox was checked out at a local hospital following the capsizing and later released.

Annie Lennox’s daughter is an artist. Ian Jones was a photographer and model. How sad that she must now put the pieces of her life together without him.

It was expected that alcohol might have been a factor in this horrible accident. The toxicology portion of the autopsy will take several weeks to get back.
