Fire officials described the body as that of a man in his 30s or 40s. He was fully clothed. Fire officials said he didn't appear to have obvious injuries, but Karen R. Aiken, who works for a Department of Public Works marine operations crew that cleans the harbor, said that she saw the man and that he appeared to have a bullet wound on the right side of his head.
