Dead Body Washes Up in Berkeley Marina

The body of a man was recovered in the Berkeley Marina Saturday morning, according to the Alameda County coroner's bureau.

Police and investigators from the Alameda County coroner's bureau have recovered the body of 31-year-old Douglas Jones. The body washed up in the Berkeley Marina at approximately 7:45 a.m on Saturday, according to the coroner's bureau. Police received a report of a body in the water against the rocks at the marina's southernmost point, Berkeley police Sgt. David White said.

A server at Hs Lordships restaurant discovered the body “submerged at the bay's edge” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The staff had been in a restaurant meeting.

"We had a moment of silence for the individual,” the Chronicle quotes general manager Kelli Praught as saying.  [Where we] “thought about their family."
