Toby Sheets, the former assistant to Steve Asmussen, died from drowning, Ioannis Aivatidis, the coroner in Corfu, Greece who performed the autopsy, told ABC News on Tuesday. Sheets disappeared last Tuesday, and was found dead on the beach on the island of Mathraki, in Greece, on Sunday. 

ABC said that the U.S. Embassy was working to have Sheets’s body sent home to the United States.

Sheets, 55, lived in Floral Park, New York, near Belmont Park. He had last been seen alive on Tuesday, June 11 at a bar on Mathraki, and was reported missing on Thursday when a friend found the door to his house open with the lights on and the air conditioning running inside.

“Toby was a part of our stable for many years, including our Belmont Stakes win with Creator, as well as his expert handling of Haynesfield among others,” Asmussen told the TDN on Monday. “He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends.”

Sheets is one of several foreign tourists who have gone missing in Greece over the past week, where they are experiencing extreme heat.
