SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) - A man whose body was found in the water off of San Francisco’s Pier 48 on Thursday morning has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 57-year-old David Biddle.
A police marine unit spotted the body of Biddle, a San Francisco resident, in the Bay at 10:37 a.m. Thursday off of the pier just south of AT&T Park, police said.
Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said it appeared the body had been in the water for a while before it was found.
The case has been handed over to the medical examiner’s office, which will determine whether the death was a suicide or homicide, Esparza said.
