A Camillus man was found dead, floating in Otisco Lake Tuesday afternoon.
Onondaga County sheriff's detectives say that Douglas Axe was kayaking in the lake by himself and was not wearing a floatation device. Two other kayakers found Axe in about 6 to 10 feet of water off the west shore of the lake near Amber Beach Road. Emergency personnel responded and pronounced Axe dead at the scene.
Detectives say they will continue to investigate, but believe Axe's death was accidental. His official cause of death will be determined by the Onondaga County Medical Examiner.
