Man's body washes up at SPI beach access

The Cameron County Sheriff TMs Office is investigating the death of a man that washed up on South Padre Island on Saturday.

Chief Gus Reyna said they received the call about the body at about 2 p.m.

A bystander came across the washed up body just north of Beach Access 6, and immediately notified the Cameron County Precinct 1 Constable.

The constable then notified the sheriff TMs office to lead the investigation, since it deals with a fatality.

Chief Reyna added that they have little information, but that an autopsy is underway to determine the cause of death.

He said the body belongs to a man in his mid-30 TMs, and had died within the past 24 hours.

Investigators have not determined the man TMs identity.

Constables also added that Beach Access 6 remained open throughout the day.

Action 4 News will post more information as it becomes available.
