Autopsy scheduled on boyfriend of Tali Lennox after kayaking accident

Staatsburg - An autopsy is scheduled for a man believed to be the boyfriend of Annie Lennox's daughter who vanished after the two were involved in a kayaking accident in New York.

Dutchess County Sheriff's Capt John Watterson says the body found on Monday afternoon near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club appears to be that of 32-year-old Ian Jones, but an official identification hasn't been made.

An autopsy is set for Tuesday.

Watterson says Jones and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann, started kayaking early on Saturday. Fruchtmann's mother is Annie Lennox, a Scottish singer who first gained success with Dave Stewart as the Eurythmics in the 1980s.

The kayak overturned near the historic Mills Mansion in Staatsburg, 75 miles north of New York City. Neither paddler was wearing a life jacket. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
