Dead body found floating in Newport Harbor

The fully-clothed dead body of a 49-year-old man was found floating facedown this morning shortly before 7 in Newport Harbor, police said.

The man has been identified as a local resident, but officials are not releasing his identity until his family members have been notified, Newport Beach Police Sgt. Shontel Sherwood said.

The body was found by two kayakers behind Orange Coast College’s sailing base, she said. The incident is being investigated as a homicide, but there is no information right now about the circumstances of the man’s death or cause, Sherwood said.

An investigation is ongoing.
