Drowning Victim Identified

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.
