CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The U.S. Coast Guard is asking the public for any information that can help in their investigation of an accident that led to the death of a kayaker near Harbor Island last month.
It was in the early morning hours of Memorial Day when officials said a vessel with an outboard motor struck the kayaker. That kayaker was identified as 31-year-old Trace Richardson of Portland, Texas.
Police said it happened around 5:24 a.m. Monday, a little over an hour before sunrise on that day. They said Richardson was not wearing a life jacket and did not appear to have any proper lighting on him or his kayak at the time of the crash.
If you have any information regarding the case, contact the U.S. Coast Guard at 361-429-5609.
