A man whose body was found Sept. 19 floating in the Patapsco River near the Dundalk Marine Terminal in Baltimore has been identified as a Pasadena resident, and his death was determined to have been caused by drowning, authorities said.

The body of Nathan Trevor Barnette, 24, of the 1900 block of Main Ave., was found floating off Pier 3 by a crewman of a ship docked there who pulled the body aboard and alerted authorities, said Cpl. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, which oversees security at the terminal.

Green said Barnette was identified through a tattoo and documents found with his body. A member of Barnette's family declined to comment Monday.
