UPDATE: Body found near Waterman Point identified

The deceased is Cary J. Schroeder, 49, of Port Orchard, officials said.

Local officials identified the body of a man found near Waterman Point in Puget Sound on Saturday.

Forty-nine-year-old Cary J. Schroeder, of Port Orchard, was identified as the deceased by the Kitsap County coroner’s office. His family has been notified.

There were no obvious signs of injury or foul play, Port Orchard Police Department Deputy Chief Dale Schuster said. The results of an autopsy are pending.

Schroeder is believed to have been living on a boat at a nearby marina, officials said.

A call from aboard the Washington State Ferry reported what appeared to be a floating body at 4:50 p.m., Port Orchard police chief Geoffrey Marti said. The ferry from Seattle to Bremerton stopped as officials searched the area.

The body of Mr. Schroeder was eventually located around 5:48 p.m.
