A group of young people located the body of a white man at San
Francisco's Ocean Beach this morning, a U.S. Park Police spokesman
The group had allegedly built an illegal fire at the beach and
was told by police to move to an area of the beach designated
for fire activity.
At about 5 a.m., the group located the nude body of a white male
who appeared to be in his 40s in the designated fire area, near
Fulton Street, spokesman Rich Weideman said.
Weideman said that the incident is being treated as suspicious
as the body was located above the high tide line at the beach,
but said there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body.
Two members of the group were questioned by police but are not
being treated as suspects, according to Weideman.
Weideman said police ran a warrant check on another man found
in the area and detained him on charges unrelated to the body.
The medical examiner's office has responded to the scene and
will investigate the cause of death.
