Authorities have identified the body of a Stanley man found 30 yards offshore from Lake Norman’s The Boat Rack in Catawba County Thursday morning.
Ronny Robert Gimon, 57, was discovered floating in the water around 10:30 a.m., according to Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid.
“He had just rented a boat slip from the rack and was apparently planning to spend the night on the boat,” Reid said.
Authorities are not calling the incident a homicide but believe it was accidental.
The Boat Rack is located in Sherrills Ford, and Sherrills Ford Rescue also responded to the scene.
The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an ongoing investigation into the incident.
