Homeless man dead in resort pool

Sheriff’s detectives say it appears a homeless man may have drowned in the pool of a Marathon resort Tuesday.

Deputy Greg LaRochelle responded to Banana Bay Resort at noon on Tuesday after an employee of the resort spotted his body at the bottom of the deep end of the pool. He and two others pulled 51 year old Michael Cosgrove from the water and began CPR which was continued when deputies and then paramedics arrived. Cosgove was pronounced dead at Fishermen’s Hospital.


Cosgrove’s van, which he reportedly lived in, was found in the parking lot of the resort. An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of his death. Major Crimes Detective Vince Weiner is assigned to investigate the case.
