A preliminary autopsy report released Monday said Rachel drowned after entering the water that was electrically charged. Deputies have not yet confirmed what exactly happened.

On Tuesday, investigators were focused on a power box attached to a building at the pool, trying to determine how an electrical charge made it to the water.

Among those at the pool included CCBI, county inspectors, the Department of Labor, and electricians.

Rachel, who was a student at Enloe High School, was a member of a Triangle-area nonprofit called The Food Ark, according to the organization.

The Food Ark is a student-lead-and-run certified nonprofit organization who aims to fight food insecurity.

According to Rachel’s Facebook page, she was an employee of the Aquatic Management Group based in Raleigh.

Rachel’s funeral will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home at 1701 E. Millbrook Road in Raleigh.
