January 26, 2000

The body of a middle-aged Camp Hill, Pa., man was found in the water near the man's power boat yesterday morning alongside the Annapolis City Dock, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

Authorities said Robert C. Shenk of the 300 block of North 27th St. in Camp Hill was apparently the victim of drowning. Shenk, a businessman who stays on his 35-foot boat when in Annapolis, is believed to be in his late 40s.

The body was spotted by a passer-by shortly before 11 a.m. along a boat tied up opposite Market House. Maryland Natural Resources Police said it was unclear how long the body had been in the water.

The body was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center, awaiting transfer to the state medical examiner's office in Baltimore.
