Drowning victim identified as Louisiana man

Posted: Updated:
HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Authorities have now identified the man found floating in Clermont Harbor around 1 a.m. Monday morning.  Two fishermen out floundering discovered the body of Randall Lee Martin, 41, of Denham Springs, Louisiana. 

Hancock County investigators said Martin had been camping with two friends at Buccaneer State Park. The friends thought he'd left with some women they'd met earlier.

Authorities said Martin's death appears to be an accidental drowning, and no foul play is suspected.
