Authorities ID Man Found Dead At Holiday Hill Marina

MAYO, Md. (AP) — Authorities are identifying a man found dead at an Anne Arundel County marina.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say the man found in the water at Holiday Hill Marina in Mayo on Wednesday evening was 70-year-old William Eckert of Hyattsville.

Firefighters and water rescuers were called to the marina after a 911 caller reported a man had fallen overboard at the marina.

Police say Eckert was found in the water near his boat when a family friend went to check on him and medics were not able to revive him. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

An autopsy will be conducted Thursday to determine cause of death.
