BELMAR — A body was found under this Jersey Shore borough's boardwalk early Saturday morning.

The body was found between 9th Street and Ocean Avenue. Photos of the scene show a body being taken away by police. A portion of the boardwalk was sectioned off.

Police did not return a request for more information Saturday morning.

Mayor Brian Magovern told NJ.com the body was that of a man who died of an apparent overdose.

The body was found on the same section of beach where two young girls drowned in 2016.
