The body of a man was found washed up on a Malibu beach early Monday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

The remains of a man believed to be in his 60s were discovered on the shoreline near Big Rock about 6:15 a.m., authorities said.

Deputies could be seen on the beach in the early light in the 20000 block of Pacific Coast Highway near Big Rock Drive with what appeared to be a white covering atop a large mound in the wet sand.

Los Angeles County paramedics responded to the scene and declared the man dead.

The Local, a Malibu news blog, first reported the story.


The cause of death is pending determination by the Los Angeles County coroner, officials said. Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the incident.
