Swiss police say killed British tourist was drunk

Swiss police say an autopsy on the body of a British tourist shows he was under "strong influence of alcohol" when he fell to his death last week.
The disappearance of 23-year-old Myles Robinson in the Alpine village of Wengen shortly before Christmas sparked a media frenzy in Britain that included speculation he might have been abducted.
His body was found Monday at the bottom of a 330-foot (100-meter) cliff some distance from the village.
Police in the canton (state) of Bern said in a statement Wednesday the body showed a blood-alcohol level of about 0.20, the equivalent of eight small bottles of beer which can leave an adult male disoriented or unconscious.
Police say their investigation will continue but the man's death appeared to have been an accident.
