Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents found the deceased body of an overdue Mississippi boater near Martin Island in St. Bernard Parish shortly before noon on Nov. 14.
Agents found the body of David McAdory, 63, of Madison County, Miss. near his anchored boat in the Chandeleur Sound portion of Louisiana waters.
Agents responded to a report of an overdue boater out of Mississippi in the late afternoon hours of Nov. 13. Agents later found the anchored boat with fishing lines still in the water with no one on board and searched until nightfall with the assistance of U.S. Coast Guard helicopters for the body of McAdory.
Agents found McAdory’s body without a personal flotation device in eight to 10 foot of water. Agents transported the deceased body and his vessel to the Fort Beauregard landing where the St. Bernard Parish Coroner assumed custody of the body to determine a cause of death.
LDWF agents do no suspect foul play at this time as the victim suffered from an unspecified medical condition, which may have contributed to his death.
