The body of a man was found floating in the water near Castle Island in South Boston this morning.
State police divers recovered the remains that were found in Pleasure Bay about 8:30 a.m.
Authorities said the remains are that of a man. They have identified the man through items found on him, but they are not releasing his name until family members can be notified and the identification can be confirmed.
A spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office said it was too early to comment on a potential cause of death.
Police are investigating.
