Posted: Updated:
SANDWICH, Mass. (WHDH) - The Cape and Islands District Attorney's office released more information on the body found on a Sandwich beach in a news  conference on Friday.

District Attorney Michael O'Keefe stated that the victim was African-American. The body had its head, arms and legs cut off and was wrapped in tarp.

“The remains appear to be an African American male, 70-72 inches in height 220 to 230 lbs. The autopsy indicated that there was no sign of natural disease process and it revealed a three-four inch surgical scar in the abdominal area on the right side of the body. The head was missing, both arms were missing and the legs were missing,” O’Keefe said.

Officials are looking for the public's assistance in the investigation regarding the body. O'Keefe specified that they were looking for unusual motor vehicle traffic in the area.

Officials also identified that the shirt found on the victim was from the Windustrial company in Warwick, R.I. and had the phrase "I got serviced" on the front.

Police said that while no public safety concerns have been identified, they have increased patrols in the area and are working closely with the DA's office.

Investigators are asking anybody who may have been in the vicinity of Town Neck Beach from Monday to Wednesday evening to report any suspicious or unusual activity to police at (508) 888-3343.
