Deputies Garrett Test and Chuck Kellenberger responded to the home at 5:45 p.m. after a neighbor and the man’s girlfriend reported finding James Gogan. The neighbor said she’d seen him working on his boat earlier in the afternoon. When the girlfriend showed up at the house at 5 p.m. she began looking for him and the neighbor helped. That is when they found him in the water.
Major Crimes Detective Deborah Ryan responded to investigate. She said she does not suspect foul play. Both women told Deputy Test Gogan had some type of “heart problem” that he was going to have looked at next month, when he took a trip to New Jersey.
