GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Autopsy results show Gulfport salon owner Kevin Anderson drowned in the Mississippi Sound after falling off his fishing boat Monday evening.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said initial autopsy results show there were no signs of trauma or injuries. Investigators hope further toxicology tests will help pinpoint what happened before Anderson died. Family members said the 51-year-old did have a history of seizures.

Anderson’s abandoned boat was found beached in Gulfport on Monday morning with the radio blaring and the motor running. His body was recovered from the Mississippi Sound near Ship Island on Wednesday morning. Hargrove said he was not wearing a life jacket.

Friends heartbroken following the death of salon owner

Friends, family, and coworkers of Anderson have been mourning his loss. He is remembered as a happy person always willing to lend a smile and a hard worker dedicated to his clients.
