SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Robert (Bobby) Cuillo, the 23-year-old whose body was found in a Scottsdale canal after he was reported missing July 17, accidentally drowned, the Maricopa County Medical Examiner reported. 

The medical examiner's office listed Cuillo's death as an accidental drowning months after two people found his body in a canal near Scottsdale and Camelback roads. 

Scottsdale Police Department officials discovered Cullio rented a motorized scooter from his phone. GPS and tracking information from the scooter showed it was driven into the canal north of Chaparral Road. 

The medical examiner's report revealed Cuillo's blood-alcohol level was over the legal limit to operate a motorized vehicle.

He was reported missing after investigators said Cuillo was last seen outside the bar Wasted Grain around 1 a.m. July 17, about a quarter-mile away from where his body was found.
