December 11, 1996|By Dan Thanh Dang | Dan Thanh Dang,SUN STAFF

A man who had been living on his sailboat at the Annapolis City Marina for the past year was found floating in Spa Creek yesterday off the 400 block of Severn Ave., Annapolis police said.

Thomas Wilus, 43, was pulled from the water about 11 a.m. after a woman walking near the vicinity of Fourth Street and Severn Avenue saw the body.

Wilus, originally from Colorado, was last seen about five days ago. He had not been reported missing, police said.

Police said there was no sign of foul play, and that Wilus might have fallen off his boat, which was docked near where his body was found. The body was sent to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

Wilus' family in Philadelphia has been notified, police said.
