Man found dead on Provincetown beach

A man in his 40s was found dead on a Provincetown beach this morning, but no foul play is suspected at this point, said Michael Trudeau, first assistant district attorney for the Cape and the islands.

Provincetown police received a report of a body at the beach at about 6:40 a.m. from a person taking an early morning walk. The body was found near the Boatslip Resort, which is located at 161 Commercial St. The man was not a guest of the resort, according to a hotel manager.

Provincetown police and State Police detectives assigned to the Cape and islands district attorney’s office are investigating the death, Trudeau said.
