Sergeant Pat Devlin with the Maine Warden Service says a neighboring camp owner found Whitney’s body about a half mile from Whitney’s pontoon boat.
The 76-year old victim lived alone on the lake and was last seen heading out on the water about 7:30 Sunday evening for his usual boat ride.
Devlin says the Medical Examiner’s office is now conducting an autopsy to determine Whitney’s cause of death.
Devlin says wardens found life jackets on Whitney’s boat, but the 76 year old man wasn’t wearing one.
It could be a couple of days before a cause of death is known.
