LA authorities have identified a body found on Venice Beach. He is a former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard.
The corpse was first seen on the beach by a resident who immediately contacted the police. L.A. Fire Department then held a press conference, saying the body was in accordance with Shad’s description.
The WWE star disappeared on Sunday afternoon while swimming with her son, Aryeh. Shad is trapped in the current.
Shad heroically told the coast guard to focus on keeping his 10-year-old son safe. But when they returned, he was gone.
Police and Coast Guard searched for almost 2 days, before suspending their efforts.
In addition to a career at WWE, Shad also starred in several films, including ‘Sandy Wexler’ with Adam Sandler.
