The 25-foot-long whale is one of several that have washed ashore in recent weeks. 

New England Aquarium officials are headed to Revere to investigate the cause of death of another whale that washed ashore early this morning. This is just another in the string of dead whales that have washed up on Massachusetts beaches in recent weeks.

The cause of death of the humpback whale in Revere is still unknown at this time. The last large dead fin whale washed ashore in Duxbury about three weeks ago. According to officials, that whale probably "stranded" itself on a beach which usually happens if they are sick, reaching old age, or make navigational errors as they chase prey.
