Lobsterman Finds Body in Tauton Bay

The Maine Marine Patrol says a lobsterman has found the body of a man in upper Taunton Bay.

The lobstermen found the body at 5:40 p.m. Tuesday north of the Hancock Sullivan Bridge near Butler Point. The marine patrol says the medical examiner's office is conducting an autopsy and confirming the man's identification. The body was transported to the medical examiner on Wednesday.

The marine patrol says the body was entangled in kelp and floating at the water's surface around a buoy.
