A 38-year-old crabber and fisherman apparently drowned Sunday night in the South River off Woodland Beach in Edgewater, police said.

The body of Timothy Ulysses Neimiller of the 8100 block of Spalding Circle in Severn was discovered by a Woodland Beach resident, who called police. Officers found Neimiller dead when they arrived, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a police spokesman.

"At this time, it's believed this was an accidental drowning," he said.

Detectives were trying to determine yesterday when Neimiller, a heating and air-conditioning service worker, was last seen alive and were searching for details about the circumstances of his death.

Relatives say Neimiller, an Annapolis native, spent his life on the water - boating, crabbing and fishing.

"We're in complete shock," said Tammy Plotts, his niece.
