State Police have identified the man whose body was found almost two weeks ago in the Hibiscus Harbor Marina in Union Springs.
On July 26th, troopers responded to a missing person report at the marina after 64-year-old Thomas Baker, of Binghamton, had not been seen for more than a day. Baker recently rented a boat slip at the marina and was last seen leaving a gathering after he had been drinking around 4 the morning of July 25th. Troopers say some people heard a splash in the direction of Baker’s boat at the time. Baker was found face down in approximately 7 feet of water about 30 yards away from his boat.
The investigation is ongoing but troopers believe the cause of his death was accidental drowning.
