Man found dead on Seal Beach jetty identified

A man found dead on a Seal Beach jetty last week has been identified as 60-year-old Artesia resident Edward Manual Garcia, authorities confirmed Monday.

Although police initially thought Garcia's death was suspicious, they now believe it was accidental, according to the Seal Beach Police Department's Twitter account.

About 9:30 a.m. Thursday, lifeguards and officers responded to a report of a man lying face down between several large rocks that form part of the southern jetty near Neptune Avenue, police said.

The Orange County coroner's office has not released the cause of death.
