Yesterday, a body was found in the San Francisco Bay off the Berkeley pier.

A boater first spotted the body at about 9:30 a.m. and notified the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard retrieved the body, but the coroner has yet to identify the man or pinpoint the cause of his death.

We except more details to come, but that’s all (and we mean ALL) that the Chron’s reporting right now.

Update, 9:00 p.m.: The Daily Cal updated early this afternoon saying that the Homicide Unit is now handling the case, according to Berkeley police Lt. Wesley “A week prior we had a report of a person seen jumping into the water off the Berkeley Pier,” Hester said. “We went down and investigated and never found the person, we’re not sure if that incident coincides with the body washing up, but it is a possibility.”

The Chron doesn’t have anything else up.

First we had a bad week for bloggers. Now Berkeley’s residents are having an even worse week.
