Ryan A. Martin : “A man found dead in the ocean at 22nd Street in Hermosa Beach, investigation ongoing”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : A 42-year-old white male, identified as Ryan A. Martin, was found dead in the ocean at 22nd Street in Hermosa Beach on the morning of Friday, November 24. Lt. Mike Gomez from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau stated that Martin may have been a transient who frequented the South Bay area. Authorities are investigating the cause of death as a possible homicide, suicide, or accidental drowning.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner estimates that it may take up to six months to determine the exact cause of death. Martin’s immediate family has been informed of his passing. Initial reports suggesting Martin may have suffered a gunshot wound to the head were found to be inaccurate. Lt. Gomez clarified that there was no gunshot wound, although Martin had blood and a facial injury. The injury, however, did not appear to be the cause of death.

Frank Kessler, a local resident who discovered Martin’s body, shared his account of the incident. Kessler, who was conducting his daily surf check, found Martin unclothed in the surf off 22nd Street around 7:15 a.m. on November 24. He pulled Martin from the ocean and attempted CPR, but soon realized he was already deceased. Kessler observed wounds on both sides of Martin’s temples, though he did not closely examine them. Martin’s face appeared intact but was discolored and his eyes were black.

According to Lt. Gomez, it seemed that Martin had not been in the water for an extended period, likely just a few hours before his discovery. The investigation is ongoing, and authorities are urging anyone who may have seen Martin in the ocean or has information related to the incident to contact the Los Angeles County Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
