Guam - James Castro died as a result of asphyxia due to drowning.

This from the island's chief medical examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola who conducted Castro's autopsy earlier today., which revealed that Castro suffered a heart attack prior to drowning.

As we've been reporting, rescue units responded to a report of a distressed swimmer by the Asan Channel on Sunday morning. When medics arrived, Castro was found unconscious and unresponsive.

Castro, who worked as a KUAM's radio operations manager and station manager back in the 90's through early 2000's, most recently worked as the marketing director of MidPac.

Rosaries are scheduled through Friday at 7:30 p.m. at St. Jude Church in Sinajana.
