Mysterious Death on the East End

East Hampton (WALK) - Police on the South Fork are trying to figure out how a Brooklyn man wound up dead in Napeague Harbor over the weekend.

Relatives found the body of Nicholas Valtz, 39, in the water off Lazy Point Road in Amagansett on Sunday afternoon. Police say Valtz had gone kiteboarding but family members went looking for him after he failed to return to a home in Bridgehampton where he'd been staying.

There was no obvious cause of death. The body was still attached to the kite and kiteboarding gear, according to police.

Investigators ask that anyone who saw Valtz or might have information about what happened to him please contact them at (631) 537-7575.
