The Allen County Coroner's Office is releasing the name of a drowning victim in hopes of reaching his family.

Thomas R. Haskins, 52, was pulled in critical condition April 29 from the Saint Marys River, at the Main Street Bridge. He died hours later at St. Joseph Hospital. His drowning was ruled accidental.

The coroner's office had not released his name earlier because staff have not been able to contact his family, according to a news release. The office is releasing his name and information with the hopes that the family can be contacted.

During the investigation coroner's office staff have learned that Haskins was born in Alaska and that his parents are dead.

This case remains under investigation by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the Fort Wayne Police Department and the coroner's office.
