Police have identified a man found dead on the shore of Harbor Road in Saugatuck Shores as a local resident.

Gregory Garoffolo, 60, of Westport was found at 8:40 a.m. Friday, when a man jogging contacted police after finding the body along the shoreline in the mud on Harbor Road, said Westport Lt. Jillian Cabana.

Investigators learned Garoffolo’s vehicle had been located on the I-95 Saugatuck River overpass during the early morning hours of May 4 and was subsequently towed by state police, said Cabana.

According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Garoffolo sustained injuries consistent with a fall and drowning. His death is not being treated as suspicious, according to police.

The shore off Harbor Road where Garoffolo's body was found is just steps away from the Saugatuck Harbor Yacht Club.
