Maryland State Police

(Jan. 4, 2019) A 68-year-old man was found dead in Herring Creek on Waterview Drive in West Ocean City last Sunday morning, the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation reported.

The Maryland State Police Berlin Barrack went to the scene around 11:38 a.m. on Dec. 30. Officers and members of the Department of Natural resources helped to bring the body of Ocean City resident Paul Scott to shore, according to the county’s bureau of investigation.

Police said Scott kept his boat at a spot near where his body was located and that

he would pump water out of his boat after a rainstorm. They also discovered a tote bag with a water pump inside, the bureau said.

Scott’s body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy, but foul play is not currently suspected.
