A body was found in the water in Boston Harbor Thursday, police confirm.
The body, which was found in the outer harbor, was first spotted by the crew of a commercial fishing vessel, which radioed the U.S. Coast Guard. Massachusetts Environmental Police and the Boston police harbor unit responded to the scene and recovered the body from the water.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said the body is believed to be that of an adult, but the body was in such a state of decomposition that identifying factors such as age, gender and ethnicity were not immediately apparent.
