FL: Hurlburt airman killed in boating accident identified

October 21, 2012

A 20-year-old Hurlburt airman was found dead Sunday morning following a boating accident near the Santa Rosa Sound.
Colby Siegel’s body was found less than 30 yards from the marker his boat struck several hours before, which caused Siegel and the two other men on the vessel to be thrown off, according to Stan Kirkland, spokesman with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The exact cause of death is still under investigation.
Kirkland said Siegel and two other men, 19-year-old Taylor Wimberly and 23-year-old Derek Richards, went out late Saturday for a fishing trip and were headed back around 3 a.m. when they hit Marker 41 near the Sound.
