RIP RYAN MARTIN (March 10, 1981 – November 24, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Friday at 7:11 a.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on December 21, presumably after the results of tox screening came back positive for the meth.

The decedent was pulled out of the ocean at 22nd Street in Hermosa Beach. He was unclothed and appeared to have already been lifeless for a few hours.
