Police bring the body of Andrew Stawiski, 55, found in Jamaica Bay last week, on shore at a marina in Far Rockaway. Police have recovered two bodies from Jamaica Bay this month in what appears to be separate incidents.

The body of Andrew Stawiski, 55, was pulled from the water off Beach 49 Street at about 1:30 p.m. last Thursday. The Chief Medical Examiner’s office said autopsy results were not yet available this week. Stawiski lived in Rockaway Beach and was an outpatient at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, a source said.

In Breezy Point, the body of a white female, 50-60 years old, was found floating face down in the bay on September 2. The woman was taken to Peninsula Hospital Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival shortly after 1 p.m. The ME’s office has not released the woman’s name or cause of death.
