Ocean City Police are investigating the discovery of dead body on the beach near Second Street this morning.

Around 6:30 a.m., citizens reported seeing the body to city employees, who then alerted Ocean City dispatchers.

City Communications Manager Jessica Waters said the body, which is believed to be a woman, was discovered in the sand. There is little indication at this time that the victim had been in the water.

Ocean City Police have closed down a large portion of the beach hours for an active death investigation. Waters said that she expected the beach to be roped off for at least eight hours.

Worcester County Sheriff deputies and Maryland State Police were also on the scene.

This is a developing story.
