Foul Play Not Suspected In Case Of Body Found Near McCovey Cove

The medical examiner has determined that the death of a person found dead near McCovey Cove in San Francisco this morning does not appear to be suspicious, according to a police spokesperson.

The body, which was seen floating in the Bay around 8:10 a.m. by a person walking their dog near Pier 48, is that of an adult, Sgt. Danielle Newman said this afternoon.

The gender has not yet been confirmed, Newman said.

Because the body was badly decomposed, it could be some time before further information is available, Newman said.
