Police trying to determine how body got on beach

Posted: Updated:
SANDWICH, Mass. (WHDH) - Investigators are still trying to determine how a body got behind a jersey barrier in the parking lot at Town Neck Beach in Sandwich and who put it there.

State and local police spent several hours at the scene removing the body after they were alerted by a passerby.

“On top it was a tarp, inside there was a couple of layers of industrial trash bags and they were all covered with duct tape and inside of that was a duffle bag,” Bret Cerulli, the man who found the body, said.

Neighbors say they didn't see what happened, but they did watch the police response.

“I got my binoculars and I looked and I could obviously see that it looked like a body. And then they got the stretcher out, put the body on the stretcher, and put it in the car,” Colin Brady said.

Cerulli said it appeared as if the body had just been dumped there, police are going off the same assumption and trying to find where the person was killed.

Investigators are asking anybody who may have been in the vicinity of Town Neck Beach from Monday to Wednesday to report any suspicious or unusual activity to police at (508) 790-5799.
