Man’s body pulled from water in Warwick Thursday is Identified

WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — A man’s body was found in Warwick Thursday morning.

Police said 59-year-old Stephen Grant from Warwick was pulled from the water.

His body was pulled from the water just before 9 a.m. at the Fairwinds Marina on Seminole Street.

The general manager of the marina Scott Curtin told ABC 6 News he noticed something in the water and contacted emergency services. Curtin said he hadn’t recognized the man around the marina before.

“It had appeared that the man had been out boating and ended up in the water and wasn’t able to get himself back out,” said Curtin. “No foul play was suspected.”

First responders helped get the man out of the water and a medical examiner arrived on scene.

Warwick Police Chief Bradford Connor confirmed the death does not appear suspicious, though an autopsy is pending for a final determination.

Connor said the man is a 59 years old. His name is being withheld pending notification to next of kin.
