Man Apparently Drowns at City Marina

The Panama City Police Department is investigating the drowning death of 23-year-old Rodney Anthony Jones.

Police say Jones jumped a fence at the Marina to go to the bathroom and apparently fell into the water. His girlfriend called police but he had already gone under the water.

The U.S. Coast Guard, the Panama City Fire Department and Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission joined the search.

Jones' body was found around 8 a.m. An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death, but police are still looking for information in the case.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Panama City Police Department at 872-3112 or the Crimestoppers Tipsline at 785-TIPS.
