Maryland Natural Resources Police have not identified the body of a man found floating Sunday afternoon in Stony Creek in Riviera Beach, a spokesman for the department said yesterday.
The body had been in the water for nearly a week before county divers -- responding to a tip -- found it about 1 p.m. under a pier near the 8200 block of Beach Road, said Bob Graham, a Department of Natural Resources spokesman.
The victim was described as a black with short hair and a medium build. He was wearing jeans, a brown belt, a thermal shirt and American Eagle hiking boots. Anyone with information should call Natural Resources Police at 1-800-628-9944.
