Investigators with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the death of an
unidentified man.

The victim was discovered deceased near Battleship Parkway (causeway) by fishermen on the morning of January 2, 2021. He was found in shallow water near the Blakely River and had been in the water for several days.

Alabama Law Enforcement Marine Patrol and Daphne Search and Rescue assisted with recovering the victim, as patrolmen with the Spanish Fort Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office began searching the Causeway and local boat launches for leads.
