Body found in Back Creek might be that of houseboater

December 01, 2009

A body found Monday morning in Back Creek in Annapolis was believed to be that of a man who lived on a nearby houseboat. The body's sighting was reported to police about 9 a.m., according to Annapolis police spokesman Ray Weaver. Officers went to the area, near Bert Jabin's Yacht Yard, and turned the investigation over to Maryland Natural Resources Police. Last Tuesday, police took a report that Heino Hans Gerard Hopp, 62, was missing and his dinghy found adrift in Back Creek, said NRP Sgt. Art Windemuth. They had not located family to verify that Hopp really was missing when a body was found Monday. Windemuth said police are investigating whether Hopp is missing and are working to identify the body. Police said Hopp was not well-known by people at Bert Jabin's.
