A drowning victim found lifeless on the ocean floor in the Cayman Islands on Sunday has been identified as a Toronto-area man.

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, 46-year-old Timothy Denver Mullin of Etobicoke went snorkelling alone off the shore of Eden Rock at about 4:00 p.m. while his mother waited on the beach. The two were on vacation.

“At about 5:30 p.m., two divers were returning to shore when they discovered the deceased’s body in about 20 feet of water motionless,” read a police statement on Monday.

Divers pulled Mullin out of the water and he was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

While an investigation is ongoing, police say there is no reason to suspect suspicious activity in Mullin’s death.
