Mysterious Body - 1846

Sad, but not very conclusive.

CORONER'S OFFICE, Gravesend, L.I., JUNE 25th.--The coroner was called to view the body of a man found on Coney Island beach. The body was entirely naked, and had the appearance of being in the water a short time.; he had sandy hair, had no marks of violence upon his person ; supposed to be about 35 years of age. Verdict, came to his death by causes unknown to the jury.

--Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Friday, June 26, 1846
