Body of woman found on Quincy beach

The body of an unidentified woman was found washed ashore on a Quincy beach early Sunday morning, the Norfolk district attorney’s office said in a statement.

An area resident spotted the body near 734 Sea St. around 5 a.m. Investigators did not find signs of foul play, and expect an autopsy to be completed this week, the district attorney’s office said.


The woman has a tattoo of the word “Forever” on her right wrist along with three letters in “stylized script,” possibly initials, that investigators could not discern, said David Traub, spokesman for the district attorney.

She was wearing a black, two-piece swimsuit and black, terry cloth coverup, as well as a silver necklace and yellow Livestrong band on her left wrist.

Investigators had not determined the woman’s approximate age Sunday evening, Traub said.

Anyone with information can call the Massachusetts State Police at 508-820-2121.
