Connecticut man's body is found in reservoir

April 26, 1994

Maryland Natural Resources police yesterday recovered the body of an 18-year-old Connecticut man yesterday who had fallen from a sail boat in the Triadelphia Reservoir April 18.

Jeremey E. Quinn of New London had been sailing with two Montgomery County men when a gust of wind capsized the boat, sending all three into the water.

Mr. Quinn's uncle, David Michael Carlin, 35, of Burtonsville, and Robert Michael Skoral, 35, of Silver Spring, managed to climb back onto the sailboat but were unable to steer it to where the victim went under, said Barbara MacLeod, a Natural Resources police spokeswoman.

Police had been searching the reservoir every day since April 18 and recovered the body yesterday at 10:12 a.m. in 40 feet of water about a half-mile north of where the trio first set sail from the Greenbridge boat ramp.
