The coroner’s office has identified the individual as Beau Mann. Height: 5 feet 9 inches
Manner of Death: Undetermined

RIP BEAU MANN (February 21, 1982 – April 25, 2023)
Previously posted as “Undetermined Doe #163” with no date of birth given.
The government agency in charge of death notices has now listed the decedent’s birth and death dates, but filled out the age field as “unknown,” which is irregular, as there is supposed to be a script that automatically calculates the age.
Do note that the ME/C suffered a catastrophic failure in updating its computer systems on April 25, so we are even less confident now than we were about the accuracy of the data that government workers are releasing to the public.
UPDATE: The decedent appears to have been a missing person who was last seen in L.A. on November 30, 2021. His final text was to 911. It is the government’s policy to log the date of death as the day the body was found instead of recording a guess as to when the death may have actually occurred. Formal pronouncement of death was made on April 25 (Tuesday) at 10:06 a.m. Similarly, the place of death is where the body was found and not where the death may have actually occurred.
UPDATE: Identification was made using dental records. The body was found about a mile from where an Uber made a drop-off on November 30.
Shame on LAPD & SMDP for never looking here! They make it sound so pleasant, a grassy area. No! This is a drug den and…
