Body found in water at Ocean Beach
UPDATE 10:15 a.m. March 29 – A man found dead in the water at Ocean Beach Thursday reportedly has been identified as 30-year-old Alex Peer of San Francisco.
SF Gate reports that an autopsy will be conducted to determine how Peer died.
Early-morning beach walkers discovered the partially clothed body of a man in the water at Ocean Beach near Judah Street Thursday morning, a National Park Service spokesman said.
“A body was noticed by passers-by on the beach about 7:30,” said Howard Levitt of the Golden Gate National Recreation area, which oversees Ocean Beach.
“They called 911. San Francisco Fire Department responded, as well as park police,” Levitt said.
Levitt said the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office was called and transported the body off the beach.
Levitt said the body of what is believed to be a white man may have had only underwear on, and did not have any identification. He said he didn’t have any other description of the body and wasn’t sure if it bore any injuries or how long it may have been in the water.
