Police investigating body found off Pemberton Point

Chief John Dunn reports that the Hull Police Department is investigating after the body of an adult male was found in the waters off Pemberton Point today [Wednesday, Jan. 2].

Hull Police were called to a location off Main Street, near the commuter boat pier, shortly after noon. Officials located the body of an adult male believed to be in his 30s. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The initial investigation indicates that the incident is not suspicious, Dunn said.

This is an active and ongoing investigation. Additional information will be released as it becomes available, he said.

No Hingham boat service this week could mean more riders in Hull

The MBTA posted this banner alert on its website today:

Hingham Commuter Ferry service will be suspended to/from Hingham throughout this week due to emergency dock repairs.  

The lack of commuter boat service in Hingham will bring added ridership to Hull. Local commuters should allow for extra time in the morning as there may be Hingham riders who don't know the protocol and who are seeking to park at Pemberton.

Fortunately, it's school vacation week, so many of the high school parking spaces should be available for use.
