The Maine Warden Service has identified the boater whose body was recovered from Chemo Pond in Eddington on Tuesday, according to a local media report.

Hill went into the water but never resurfaced. His body was found early Tuesday morning in about 20 feet of water. Wardens used an underwater device to find him.
