A body that was recovered from marshlands near Coyote Hills Regional Park on Friday afternoon was severely decomposed, Fremont authorities said Saturday.
Fremont police and fire officials were alerted Thursday night, when the body was first spotted, by East Bay Regional Parks Police.
Because of the location, crews had to wait until the tide came in enough to retrieve the body, which was turned over to the Alameda County coroner.
Because of decomposition, it was impossible to determine any injuries, identity, or other information, according to Fremont police.
Detectives will follow up on the case on Monday with the coroner, police said.
