Body discovered near shore in Massachusetts determined to be man reported missing last month



A body discovered Thursday on the shore near Edgemere Road in Marblehead has been positively identified as that of a missing Massachusetts man, Essex County District Attorney Paul F. Tucker, Marblehead Police Chief Dennis King, Salem Police Chief Lucas Miller and Peabody Police Chief Thomas Griffin announced Saturday.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed the body was that of 31-year-old Michael Gray of Peabody.

Gray’s family reported him missing on December 11th. Earlier this month, State Police and local dive teams searched for Gray over several days in the water off Juniper Beach in Salem.

They focused on the site after finding a potential connection between Gray and some articles of clothing found on the beach on December 12th.

Gray’s body was found just across Salem Harbor on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 26, by a woman walking her dog in Marblehead.

Detectives from the Peabody and Salem Police Departments, as well as troopers from the Essex County District Attorney’s Office State Police Detective Unit, are investigating the case.
