We now know the name of the man who was found floating in Biloxi’s Back Bay last week. Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said Austin Devin, 36, drowned near the IP Casino and the Old Back Bay Bridge.

Hargrove said Devin was homeless and living in an area near the Back Bay.

Officials say Devin was spotted by construction workers swimming in the area Aug. 19. Witnesses told investigators he was fully clothed and didn’t seem to be in distress.

He was found floating in the water a short time after.
