Man’s body discovered in Alameda lagoon

A man’s body was found Saturday morning in a lagoon in Alameda, Alameda County sheriff’s officials said.

Sheriff’s deputies went out to the body at about 10:50 a.m. in a lagoon north of 339 Broadway.

Someone called Alameda police at 8:44 a.m. and said something was floating in the water.

Police Lt. Matt McMullen said it was not obvious how the man died.

Officers will be investigating it as suspicious until the coroner determines the cause.

McMullen said:

“It’s absolutely suspicious.”

The investigation could become a homicide investigation depending on what the coroner finds.

Officers will also look into whether the man was a missing person.

The man’s identity will not be released until the coroner identifies him and notifies his family.
