Body found floating in Gardiners Bay off Amagansett


The body of an unidentified man was found floating in Gardiner’s Bay on Saturday afternoon by fishermen.

Officers from the East Hampton Town Marine Patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard recovered the body just off Napeague Harbor late Saturday afternoon and brought it to the U.S. Coast Guard Station in Montauk. The body was later removed by the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office.

As of early this week, East Hampton Town Police said they had not yet identified the victim or determined the cause of death. Detectives are investigating.

Police are asking that anyone with information relating to the case contact Town Police headquarters at 537-7575.
