AMAGANSETT - East Hampton Town police say a badly decomposed body was found on an Amagansett beach on Sunday.

Authorities say the grisly discovery was made by a beach walker sometime between noon and 12:30 p.m. It was found on a beach between Barnes Hole and Albert's Landing roads.

According to Newsday, the corpse was missing some parts, prompting the dispatch of a police diving crew to search local waters. It was unclear whether the body was a male or a female.

Officials say homicide detectives are working the case, although they say that does not necessarily indicate foul play.
