The San Diego County medical examiner ruled Brandon Beaver's death a suicide.

The 42-year-old San Diego man went missing off Tourmaline Surf Park Beach around sunset on May 8.

U-T San Diego says lifeguards found his wet suit wrapped around his surfboard.

His body had shark bites when it was found in the surf the next day.

However, the medical examiner's office determined that the bites were made after Beaver's death.
