GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities have identified the man whose body was pulled from Grand Haven Harbor Wednesday.
The body of 54-year-old Mark Emerson Lamb was discovered by a dredging crew in Grand Haven Harbor near Dewey Hill around 9 a.m. Wednesday. His family has been notified, the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety said.
Lamb’s cause of death was found to be drowning, police said Wednesday, and there is not any evidence of foul play.
Authorities say Lamb was homeless, and recently frequented the Grand Haven and Spring Lake area.
Detectives were able to backtrack where Lamb had been over the Fourth of July weekend using items found with is body. They had some contact with people who had seen Lamb that weekend.
Police say they found evidence that put Lamb at an “impromptu” campsite near Pottawattomie Bridge on Mercury Drive in Grand Haven on July 6. They say it’s likely he entered the water not far from there.
