Just saw more info on the news. Apparently he was with his wife and decided to break a cardinal rule of diving, free OR scuba, went solo. Did not say if he was a regular to the area or a tourist on vacation, my point being that the area he was diving, scares me with my 30 years and hundreds of hours under water, around the world. I will go down alone but never without someone at least on the boat. Damn shame, a little common sense, the guy would probably be alive eating breakfast right now.

Hartford station had a short piece at noon Tue that they had recovered his body, but I cannot find the story anywhere. Channel 3 said he may have been a spear fisherman.

Fin

Short story here Chanell 10

The Coast Guard suspended the search Sunday night, but Monday friends of Stevens from the Rhode Island Freediving Club launched their own search. Members of the club found his body in the afternoon, and a dive team from the Warwick Police Department recovered his body.
