TURNAGAIN ARM -- Police say a man found dead Monday along Turnagain Arm may have fallen while walking along rocks near McHugh Creek.

A Canadian tourist spotted Richard Stone, 59, floating face down in the water at about 12:30 p.m. near the Seward Highway, said Anita Shell, a police spokeswoman.

Stone's car was parked in a nearby lot. Police found no initial signs of foul play and the death appears to be an accident, Shell said.
