TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (AP) - Police in coastal Georgia are investigating the death of a man whose body was found floating in a marsh.
Tybee police Lt. Tiffany Hayes says 31-year-old Daniel Cason went fishing in his canoe on Horsepen Creek over the weekend and didn't return. Hayes says Cason's friends saw the man's unattended canoe and went looking for him on Sunday.
Hayes says Cason was found lying face-down in a marsh Sunday and his cause of death hasn't been determined.
The Savannah Morning News reports Cason's autopsy was scheduled for Monday at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's crime lab.
