An unidentified adult male was found deceased along the shoreline
of McNears Beach in San Rafael shortly after 8:00 am this morning. The body likely washed ashore overnight. The subject appeared to have been deceased for at least several days, with evidence of long term postmortem exposure to the water. The Coroner Division of the Marin County
Sheriff’s Office has positively identified the subject, who was a known missing
person from the Bay Area. No suspicious circumstances
are associated with the missing person case, and there are no initial concerns
of foul play associated with the death. The Coroner Division is withholding identifiable
information on the decedent pending notification to his next-of-kin.
