Divers searching the wreckage of the capsized Seacor Power in the Gulf of Mexico have recovered the body of a sixth crew member, the Lafourche Parish coroner confirmed to our media partners at The Advocate Tuesday night.

He was identified as 31-year-old Quinon Pitre of the Lawtell area.

Pitre's cause of death is unknown, the paper reports.

The 31-year-old father of two was one of 19 crew members on board the commercial lift boat when it capsized during severe weather Tuesday, April 13. Six were rescued, six have been recovered, and seven remain missing as of Tuesday, April 20.

KATC has reached out to the coroner's office for more information but we've not yet heard back.
