    Authorities said the dinghy from Maney's boat was located by a United States Coast Guard helicopter stuck in the mud on nearby marshland.

    A preliminary investigation into Maney's death indicates an accidental drowning.

    Ipswich Police, the Essex County District Attorney's Office, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner are jointly investigating. Authorities said high winds did create rough and choppy waters in the area Sunday and Monday.
