The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has released the identity of a man who drowned Monday at Silver Sands State Park in Milford. Environmental Conservation Police are continuing to investigate the death of 34-year-old Rocco Daddio, Jr., of Hamden.
The Coast Guard says Daddio and a nine-year-old boy were walking on a sandbar to Clark Island when the tide washed them into Long Island Sound. A jet skier was able to get the boy to shore, but upon returning, could not find Daddio. His body was found about two and a half hours later.
