Police say 48-year-old Kerry Agosto, of Ronkonkoma, was found floating in the water.
Smith Point County Park is home to the TWA Flight 800 memorial and a 5-mile-long public beach.

The service is taking place at Smith Point County Park at the same time as a new documentary questioning federal investigators’ findings about the crash is set to air.
