LITCHFIELD — The person found floating in Mount Tom Pond March 28 has been identified as a 67-year-old Oakville man, authorities said.

The cause of death for Michael Borys has not been determined, state police said Wednesday.

A representative from the state police Public Information Office said the investigation is ongoing, and there is “no criminal aspect to the death,” according to the state medical examiner.

Borys was found floating in the water about 15 feet from shore. Bantam Fire Co. members removed him from the water and transported him by ambulance to Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

According to his obituary at tribute.com, Borys was married for 42 years and had two grown children, a sister and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was a Navy veteran and worked in the emergency department at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. He previously worked as a corrections nurse in Cheshire, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury and at the emergency department of Yale New Haven Hospital. He also taught trauma nursing courses.

O’Neill Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
