Atlantic City police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man whose body was found in the ocean last week.
The body was discovered about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday attached to a jetty off Pacific Avenue. City firefighters worked several hours to remove the body and bring it to shore.
Since then, police have been working with the Southern Regional Medical Examiner’s Office to identify the man.
Authorities said the man was over 40 years old, 5-foot-3, weighed about 150 pounds, and had a lean build. He was light-skinned, of indeterminate race and ethnicity, with an 8-inch vertical scar on his stomach, and was believed to have had no teeth for a while.
He was wearing a small, short sleeve, collared, button-down Comme CA ISM Foxes Co. LTD shirt with tan vertical pinstripes.
