Investigators tell NewsChannel 3 that 71-year old James Sawhill, Jr. was found dead in a boat on Diascund Creek at around 11 a.m.

His head and upper body were leaning into the water.

They think Sawhill may have been trying to get some papers out of the water at the time of his death.

The medical examiner is looking into a cause of death.
