Former federal prosecutor found dead in Niagara River

Former Assistant U.S. attorney George C. Burgasser spent Sunday evening on his son's boat docked at Smith Boys marina in North Tonawanda.

Then he disappeared.

Police said his son, who was below deck, heard a sound. He came up to the deck, saw his dad was missing and went into a panic, police said.

Another son, who came to help in the search, later found Burgasser's lifeless body floating in the water a couple of docks away, police said. Burgasser, who lived in North Tonawanda, was 63.

A preliminary investigation by the North Tonawanda police indicates the death was likely either an accident or related to a medical event, said Capt. Thomas Krantz.
