How tragic for his family. I wonder if he suffered a heart attack or some other medical issue and fell overboard.

What I'm having a hard time understanding is why would LE not release his name? Is he in witness protection? Wanted for murder? He has someone after him? I just can't think of any reason why.

Located: "G.E.W., a 56-year-old Williamsburg man, was reported missing by his family Dec. 16 after he did not come home from a fishing trip on the York River. His boat was found the next day on the Gloucester County side of the York River about 1 mile south of the Coleman Bridge. After that, searchers did not find a trace of the man.
On April 2, a group of kayakers were walking around on Raccoon Island when they discovered a body, according to Northampton County Sheriff David L. Doughty Jr. Investigators from the sheriff’s office and the Virginia Marine Police responded to the area and recovered the body, which was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Norfolk for autopsy and identification.
Doughty said investigators believe the water carried W’s body to the island. The exact cause of death is still pending."
