A body washed up on Winthrop Beach Thursday evening, a State Police spokesman said. Authorities are investigating whether the body is that of a 50-year-old homeless man who has been missing from East Boston for several weeks. The preliminary investigation suggests that the death is not criminal in nature; however, an autopsy will be done, State Police said.
