Woman's body found floating off Port Townsend

A woman’s body was found in Port Townsend Bay on Wednesday afternoon, after apparently floating for weeks in the water.

Construction workers at first thought it was a buoy, but two men taking photos discerned what they saw, and called 911 just before 3 p.m., near City Pier downtown.

Teeth and identifying marks may help with identification, authorities said. An autopsy is planned Thursday, said Bill Beezley, spokesman for East Jefferson Fire and Rescue.  There was no clothing or equipment to indicate she had been boating, Beezley said.
