The remains were located in the waterway and the subject was pulled onto a dock at the base of Bon Air Bridge. The subject was pronounced deceased without any resuscitative aid being rendered, due to what police described as physiological signs of death.
The subject was exposed to elements and submerged for a long period, according to a preliminary investigation, police said. No overt signs of foul play were noted.
The subject, a 59-year-old man from the San Rafael area, had no fixed residential address, police said. A forensic postmortem examination with toxicology testing is scheduled for later this week, police said.
