SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — A body that washed up on a Massachusetts shore in front of beachgoers has been identified as that of a man missing since his boat capsized last week.

The Essex County district attorney’s office says the body found on Salisbury Beach on Monday morning has been identified as 44-year-old Chhoeun Chhoun, of Lowell.

Authorities say Chhoun went missing last Tuesday after his boat capsized near the mouth of the Merrimack River. Emergency crews had searched for him.

He says he pulled the corpse back to the beach before calling for help.
