Yesterday (Friday) some dead dude was found floating in the water just off shore at 8th street in Manhattan Beach at around 1:00 in the afternoon. The man haas been identified as Stephen Weber, according to Manhattan Beach Poloce officials.

There is no apparent foul play, according to MBPD, and is being investigated as an apparent suicide.

The dead dude was found by some random person who called the cops, and the dead dude had been reported missing the night before his body was found.

Bummer for the dude who found the dead dude because that's not what you're really hoping for when you go to enjoy the waves. And of course bummer for the dead dude, because like... he's dead DUH. ok, carry on.
