ORONOGO, Mo. — Oronogo Police Department officials on Monday declined to release any details about a man who died Saturday while scuba diving at Captain John’s Sports and Scuba park in Oronogo.

Chief Jeff Fries said his department was waiting on autopsy results, which he didn’t think would be available Monday.

He said “a full press release” on the incident, including identification of the victim, will be issued once results of the autopsy are delivered to his office.

John Mueller, president of Captain John’s, previously told the Globe that the man had been participating in a deep technical scuba course in the former open-pit mine when he apparently surfaced too quickly.
