Police ID woman who drowned at Huntington State Beach

Police on Tuesday released the identity of a 30-year-old La Habra woman found dead this week at Huntington State Beach.

Myphoung Tran's body was discovered early Monday morning. Her identity was initially withheld, pending family notification.

The coroner determined that Tran had drowned, said Huntington Beach police Lt. Russell Reinhart.

"There's no indication of anything criminal," Reinhart said. "It could possibly be self-inflicted, but we haven't determined that yet."

Huntington Beach police and the county coroner are working together to determine whether Tran committed suicide, Reinhart said.

"We'll get a hold of the last people that saw her and talk to the family members," he said.

A resident called police at 6:55 a.m. after finding Tran's body near the waterline at Magnolia Street at Pacific Coast Highway.

Tran was fully clothed and did not appear to have suffered from any trauma.
