Surfboard was found separate from shark-bitten body with wetsuit tied around it
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 May, 2013 : - - Authorities are investigating the mysterious death of a San Diego surfer whose body was found covered with shark bites. San Diego Lifeguard Lt. John Everhart says someone walking on the beach discovered the body before dawn Thursday.
Authorities believe the body is that of a 42-year-old man who was reported missing by his fiancee Wednesday night after he did not return from surfing. Neither the man's name nor the name of his fiancee have been released.
Lifeguards said there were no clear signs of struggle. However, when the body was found, it had suffered several injuries. San Diego lifeguard Lt. John Everhart said that the man's surfboard was found separately with his wetsuit tied around it, a detail Everhart found odd.
“I’ve been doing this 30 years almost and I’ve never seen someone do that,” he said. “It’s just a very strange decision to make when you’re out on the water.”
Everhart says the body had wounds consistent with a shark attack, but there were no obvious signs of a struggle. The medical examiner concluded the attack occurred after the surfer had died.
