Man's body found off Newport Beach coast
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Orange County authorities are asking for public help to identify a man whose body was found floating a mile off of Newport Beach.
The Sheriff's Department says a commercial fisherman discovered the body on Christmas Eve near Crystal Cove.
City News Service says the body was too badly decomposed to determine the man's race or age. But he had dark hair, stood 5-foot-9 and weighed about 165 pounds. He was wearing dark-colored nylon sweatpants, black running shoes and a black watch.
There's now word on what caused his death.
