A body washed up in the Berkeley Marina on Saturday morning.

Berkeley police Sgt. David White told Bay City News that police received a report of a body in the water at the marina’s southernmost point at 7:45 a.m. Saturday. Police and firefighters responded soon after and determined that the man was dead.

The Bay Area News group reported Sunday that the man has been identified as 31-year-old Oakland resident Douglas Jones. As of Tuesday, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau was still working to determine the cause of death.

White told Bay City News that the body, which was fully clothed, did not show any obvious signs of trauma.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday that an employee at a restaurant at the southwestern tip of the marina discovered the body, which was partially submerged at the bay’s edge, on Saturday morning.
