ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – A body found Friday floating in the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Johns County has been identified as a 43-year-old man.

Deputies said Clayton Paul Allen is believed to be a transient living in the county. They said his last known addresses were in the western region of the U.S. and Texas.

Allen's death is still under investigation, but no signs of foul play have been found so far, deputies said.

Allen's body was found Friday near North Griffin Shores Drive by a boater, who alerted a Customs and Border Protection boat in the area, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said Allen's cause of death is pending toxicology results, which could take a month to come back from the lab.
