Man Who Drowned in Lake Wepawaug Walked Away from Crash: Cops

Police have released the name of a man who drowned in Lake Wepawaug in Orange on Saturday afternoon.

The body of Vaughn Porteous, 27, of Hamden, was spotted about 15 feet from shore in off Grassy Hill Road, an area where people frequently fish.

Authorities believe Porteous had walked away from a car crash on Route 15 North in Bethany on March 19, but when officers got to the scene of that accident, no one was in the vehicle.

Police do not suspect foul play.
