A body found Saturday morning by a kayaker near NAD Park, off of Ostrich Bay in Bremerton, has been identified.

The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office identified the man as 27-year-old Jose L. Guzman-Abad. The cause and manner of death will be determined once the toxicology report is conducted, Kitsap County Coroner Jeff Wallis said.
