Investigators said a Burnside man died Sunday after falling off a cliff along Lake Cumberland in Pulaski County.
The Medical Examiner identified the victim as Justin Shelton, 32.
The autopsy showed there was very little water in Shelton's lungs.
The discovery ruled out a drowning.
However, the examiner found part of a tree branch in Shelton's hand.
It suggested he tried to grab a tree to keep himself from falling.
