A missing swimmer’s corpse was discovered Monday near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where Vice President Joe Biden has a beach property.
According to Delaware Online, Richard Boateng, 31, of Savage, Maryland, was last seen Sunday evening in the surf off Rehoboth Beach, according to the city’s police department.
Multiple 911 calls resulted in a manhunt involving multiple local agencies.
Boeteng’s body was discovered in the ocean off North Shores, a small community north of Rehoboth Beach, at approximately 6:00 a.m. on Monday.
A few hundred yards to the east of the Bidens’ seashore house was the location.
The president spent the weekend there and made headlines by claiming he had “no home to go to.”
In addition to other security measures, a fence was erected around the Biden residence last year, according to the Cape Gazette of nearby Lewes, Delaware. The fence cost $400,000 dollars.
According to the Cape Gazette, with the president in town for Labor Day weekend, the Coast Guard established security zones in the ocean beyond the location where the body was discovered.
Biden takes coastal treks in the vicinity of the location where the body was discovered.
The Bidens purchased the property in 2017, per the Salisbury, Maryland, Daily Times.
Although the president will be traveling this week, the first lady will remain at home after a positive COVID-19 test on Monday.
According to WGMD-TV in Rehoboth Beach, calls to 911 regarding Boateng began around 20 minutes after lifeguards left duty on Sunday.
