The body was spotted by staff at Hs Lordships restaurant

The body of a man that washed up on the Berkeley Marina Saturday morning was identified Sunday as 31-year-old Douglas Jones from Oakland, according to a Bay Area News Group report.

Investigators are still working to determine how he died, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau. Preliminary indications suggest the death is not suspicious, according to the Chronicle.

The police reported that a server at Hs Lordships restaurant on Seawall Drive spotted Jones around 7:45 a.m. on Saturday. The body was fully clothed, appeared to have been in the water a relatively short period of time, and had come to rest against some rocks.

Hs Lordships staff had gathered at the restaurant for a meeting, according to its general manager Kelli Praught, speaking to the Chronicle.

Investigators will perform an autopsy to seek further information on the cause of death.
