He further told police that he went to see what the crows were eating and found the body of a man dressed in kaki short pants and a black T-shirt floating face down in the sea. Police fished the body at around 5:30 pm and conducted a onsite post-mortem. But due to the advanced state of decomposition there were unable to identify him.
