Human remains have been discovered in East Boston, authorities confirm.
Massachusetts State Police say a partially decomposed body was found Friday in a dry area of a marsh on Belle Isle.
Authorities would not reveal the age or gender of the deceased person. They also could not say whether foul play was suspected, but state police confirmed they were investigating it as a potential crime scene in case the death is determined to be a homicide.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office is investigating.
