Annapolis fisherman drowns in Mill Creek

Anne Arundel police have recovered the body of a 52-year-old Annapolis man, who had been fishing from a pier on Mill Creek Friday.

Investigators believe the man fell from a pier at a location off Clay Hill Road and into the eight-foot-deep water. A nearby homeowner called police after discovering the victim's fishing gear on the pier at about 4 p.m. Divers found the body shortly before 8 p.m.

Police said Saturday they will not release the man's identity until Monday, pending notification of family members.
