The Shasta County Coroner has identified a man found dead in Whiskeytown Lake Sunday morning.

Authorities say, Patrick Brown, 58, of Weed, fell off of a dock at the Brandy Creek Marina late Saturday night. Friends and family called 911 around 11:15 p.m., but search crews were unable to locate Brown’s body until about 10:30 Sunday morning.

Brown’s death is being investigated as a possible drowning, but an exact cause of death is pending an autopsy, which is scheduled for later this week.
