BARRINGTON, R.I. — A human body has been recovered from the waters off Barrington.
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management tells WPRI-TV that a quahogger called authorities after finding the body in the water near Nayatt Point Road just after 7 a.m. Friday.
Barrington police say they originally set up a staging area at Haines Memorial Park in Barrington, but moved the staging area to a boat ramp at Colt State Park in Bristol just after 8 a.m.
The state medical examiner will take possession of the body and perform an autopsy.
The body appears to be that of a male but no additional information was immediately released.
