On Monday, November 24, 2014, Pathologist Dr. William L. Selby, conducted an autopsy of Alec Lansing, the teenager who walked away from Trails Carolina campsite on November 10, 2014. The cause of death indicated was Hypothermia. An additional significant factor in this autopsy that was noted by Dr. Selby was a broken hip. Investigators who were present on scene where the body of Lansing was found noted evidence of removed moss from a tree which leaned over the small stream in which Lansing was found on Saturday, November 22, 2014. Investigators believe Lansing had scaled the tree and fallen into the shallow stream, resulting in the broken hip rendering him immobile.
