Kayaker discovers body near Alviso

Members of the SJFD Urban Search and Rescue Task Force launched two rescue boats and were guided to the scene by a CAL FIRE helicopter. Upon their arrival firefighters determined the victim, a male, was deceased.

UPDATE

The preliminary cause of death is drowning, but the investigation continues into whether the death was ultimately a suicide.
