A preliminary autopsy report showed Boever died from extensive traumatic injuries from the crash, but a complete report will take several weeks to complete, Secretary of Public Safety Craig Price said.Ravnsborg initially told a county sheriff dispatched to the crash site that he thought he struck a deer on U.S. Highway 14 near Highmore in central South Dakota. Secretary of Public Safety Craig Price said the toxicology report found "zero" alcohol in Ravnsborg's blood, which was drawn on the day following the crash at 1:30 p.m. When asked by CBS affiliate KELO-TV if the blood sample should have been taken the night of the crash, Price said: "I'm not going to speculate on the work of others, I know once our office became involved which was the next day at around 10:30 when we got on scene we worked efficiently to go ahead and get that information." Ravnsborg has also said he agreed to let investigators search two cellphones he had with him.Gov. Kristi Noem has promised a transparent investigation into the Republican attorney general, who is serving his first term in office after winning election in 2018.But Nick Nemec, Boever's cousin, said he was frustrated with how slow the investigation was proceeding.
