Malibu Lagoon State Beach – An ongoing homicide investigation has been launched after the discovery of a deceased Black male inside a container at Malibu Lagoon State Beach on Monday. Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to an emergency call reporting a body found in a 55-gallon drum on the beach, near the 23200 block of Pacific Coast Highway.
The container was reportedly discovered floating near the shore by a diligent beachgoer. It was then brought ashore by lifeguards, who were shocked to find an unclothed body inside. The victim, whose identity is yet to be confirmed, was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not yet released any further information regarding the deceased.
The duration for which the container and the body were in the water remains unclear at this time. The drum, believed to have been found on the lagoon side of the beach, has become a crucial piece of evidence in the ongoing investigation.
As investigators work diligently to determine the cause of death, the authorities have asked beachgoers to vacate the area due to the significant presence of law enforcement officials conducting their inquiries. The sprawling beach, a popular tourist destination, now stands as a crime scene awaiting further analysis.
Details regarding the cause of death remain under wraps, as further examination is required to provide a conclusive determination. Nevertheless, the ongoing investigation has officially been classified as a homicide inquiry, suggesting foul play may be involved.
Authorities encourage anyone with information related to the incident to come forward and assist in ensuring justice is served. As the investigation pushes forward, the usual serenity of Malibu Lagoon State Beach remains clouded by this tragic event.
