Autopsy: San Diego Surfer Drowned Before Bitten By Shark

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- An autopsy has concluded that a San Diego surfer whose body was found in the water had drowned before being bitten by sharks.

Brandon Beaver's body was found floating offshore early Thursday. A day before, he went missing during a surfing outing off Pacific Beach.

The 42-year-old man's surfboard was found with his wetsuit tied around it.

The county Medical Examiner's office has concluded that Beaver drowned, and that the shark bites came in a "post-mortem" attack.

SLEEP WITH DOGS - GET FLEAS.

Why don't we have Negotiations with a Congressional special committee and send the sharks millions of dollars so they don't harm us anymore .

Sound Familiar?

Wow! That is amazing. He was found a day before he went missing. He must be a time surfer. I really am sick of journalists who can't write properly.

I wonder why he died in the first place then.
