EASTPORT, Miss. (AP) - Tishomingo County Coroner Mack Wilemon says an autopsy in Jackson will indicate whether a death at the Eastport marina was an accidental drowning or the result of a medical condition.

He tells The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1tcIZDO ) that someone walking on the boardwalk found 56-year-old David Wesson’s body floating in a slip at the marina.

He says Wesson was from Baldwyn but lived in a cabin at Eastport but was from Baldwyn.

Witnesses told authorities that Wesson had been out on a pontoon boat and came in to the slip.
