Police were called to the beach at Beach 58 street early Monday morning where the body of an unidentified man was found at the shoreline.

Captain Gary Scirica of the 100 Precinct told The Wave Wednesday that the medical examiner completed an initial work-up and it has thus far been deemed a non-suspicious drowning.

Detectives from the 100 Prec9inct are continuing their normal operation of investigating the case and conducting a forensic study. At this time the authorities are asking for the community’s assistance in helping to find out the dead man’s identity.

According to police, the corpse was 5’6", clad in black jeans, black boots and no shirt. Anyone with any information about the drowning victim is asked to call Detective McCaffrey at the 100 Precinct Detective Squad at 318-4224.
