Death of man found in Saratoga Lake ruled accidental

SARATOGA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — New York State Police say the body of a man officials believe to have been homeless was found in Saratoga Lake Sunday night.

New York State troopers were dispatched to Route 9P on Saratoga Lake at 9:03 p.m. Sunday after a man noticed unfamiliar items on his dock and called the police.

When Troopers arrived on scene they found and removed a male submerged in the water, identified as 52-year-old Guy Simmons. A coroner pronounced Simmons dead at the scene.

An investigation and an autopsy revealed that Simmons died as a result of accidental drowning. New York State Police have determined that Simmons’ death was accidental and not a suicide of the result of foul play.

State Police say interviews and surveillance videos show Simmons walked out onto the dock alone.
