Oakland Police: Body of Male Found in Estuary

Updated at 12:50 a.m. Wednesday, June 20

Bay City News—A man's body was found weighted down in the water in the Oakland Estuary Tuesday morning, a police spokeswoman said.

Police received a report at 6:29 a.m. that someone had spotted feet sticking up out of the water a few feet from a dock at 115 Embarcadero, Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said. That's roughly opposite the ferry landing at 2900 Main St., Alameda.

Firefighters also responded, and pulled the body from the water. Watson said there were some weights "associated with the body" that had apparently been used to hold it down in the water.

According to news reports Tuesday evening, Oakland police said the body was found close to the Jack London Aquatics Center. The victim was a 27-year-old man whose name was not released by police. It's not yet clear if his death was homicide or suicide, police said.
