Re: Bay Area hull cleaner killed on the job?

It is unclear whether Swanson was found in the water or not. Here is the unpublished press report from a local TV station, which I supplied to Latitude (I also provided other details, gathered from a marina employee) upon which they based their story:

IN OVERNIGHT NEWS:
OAKLAND POLICE FOUND A BODY IN THE OAKLAND ESTUARY. POLICE SAY THEY LOCATED THE MAN AT ABOUT 3:30 THIS MORNING, ON A PIER NEAR JACK LONDON SQUARE.
THE MAN'S WIFE TOLD POLICE HER HUSBAND CLEANS BOATS WORKING UNDERNEATH THEM OFTEN, AND SHE CALLED 9-1-1 WHEN HE DIDN'T COME HOME LAST NIGHT.
RIGHT NOW, POLICE SAY THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF FOUL PLAY, BUT THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES.
