Authorities have arrested a 29-year-old man on a manslaughter charge in connection with the death of a man whose body was found about 1½ miles from shore in the Gulf of Mexico on Dec. 4, according to a Clearwater Police Department news release.
Detectives say Shane Dugan and 48-year-old Lonnie Wilson were on a boat when they got into an argument Dec. 3, and Dugan threw Wilson off the boat and into the intracoastal waterway near Clearwater Pass.
Wilson’s body was found around 4 p.m. the next day in the water near Sand Key Park.
Dugan was booked into the Pinellas County Jail Friday afternoon and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
