Body not related to Foxy Lady II

BOSTON — The Suffolk District Attorney's office says investigators have identified human remains that appear to have washed onshore from Boston Harbor.

A spokesman this morning said that although the office is not releasing a name, the body is not that of one of two men presumed lost at sea when the Gloucester-based scalloper, The Foxy Lady II, failed to return from a trip.

There has been no sign of Wallace “Chubby” Gray Jr., 26, and Wayne Young, 50, both of Deer Isle, Maine, since the last contact with the fishing vessel on Dec. 15, except for a life capsule that was found in a Saugus estuary Dec 18.

The remains were found Thursday night on the beach at the end of Cottage Park Road in Winthrop, across from Logan International Airport.

The prosecutor's office said the person's death does not appear to have been the result of a crime. An autopsy is planned and state and Winthrop police are investigating.

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
