OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Connecticut man who was found in the water at a marina and later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police on Monday identified the man as 72-year-old Francis Gentile, of Berlin.

Gentile was found Saturday night in the water at Brewer Ferry Point Marina in Old Saybrook. Police say his death appears to have been an accident.

Police say Gentile had earlier been reported missing.

They say Gentile was a member of the marina and owned a boat there.

The investigation is ongoing.


This story has been corrected to show the name of the marina is Brewer Ferry Point Marina, not Brewer’s Ferry Point Marina.
