Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans’ Press Secretary, Desi Deschaine, was found dead this morning in Baltimore Harbor. Deschaine was reported missing yesterday when he failed to show up for work yesterday. He had been on a boating excursion in the harbor over the weekend, but debarked with the rest of the group at 10:30pm on Sunday.
It’s not clear if this is considered foul play or an accidental death at this time. Our hearts go out to Deschaine’s family and friends. Mike DeBonis from the City Paper has a remembrance of Deschaine posted to their City Desk blog. Deschaine’s commitment to the city, and his friends, will be sorely missed.
