Ex-WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard Dead at 39, Body Found on Venice Beach
The L.A. Fire Department held a news conference Wednesday morning, saying the body matches the description of Shad ... a 6'6" black male over 240 lbs.

Los Angeles – The body of a man found near a lifeguard tower at Venice Beach early Wednesday matches that of former WWE star Shad Gaspard, who went missing while swimming with his son over the weekend, officials said.

CBS Los Angeles reports police officers were called to Lifeguard Tower 26 at Venice Beach at about 1:45 a.m. after a man was found lifeless, Los Angeles Fire Department's Brian Humphrey said. The body had been reported to authorities by two people who were walking on the beach at low tide, at about 1:30 a.m.

LA County lifeguards later confirmed the body matched Gaspard's description. There were no signs of foul play.

The area where the body was found is about a half mile north of where Gaspard was last seen. He has been missing since Sunday, when he and his 10-year-old son got caught in a rip current while swimming. The boy was saved, but rescuers were unable to find Gaspard.


A search for Gaspard was called off on Tuesday.
