A man found dead in Miller Place Wednesday appears to have been a “victim of violence,” Suffolk County police said.

A man looking for driftwood discovered the body lying on the sand in front of the Miller Beach Surf Club around 4:30 p.m. and notified the authorities, police said.

A preliminary investigation by the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office found that the man “was a victim of violence,” police said, but authorities didn’t elaborate.

A Suffolk County police spokeswoman said Thursday morning that there still wasn’t an update on the victim’s cause of death.

Police have yet to identify the victim.

The man’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office where a complete autopsy will be performed, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Squad at 631-852-6392 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
