LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Department says a body found on Venice Beach is that of former World Wrestling Entertainment pro Shad Gaspard.
He went missing in the water while swimming with his son over the weekend.
A department statement says officers were flagged down early Wednesday by a citizen reporting that a body had washed ashore.
The department says the body was identified and next-of-kin notified.
The wrestler turned actor was last seen about 50 yards offshore after he was caught in a rip current.
Gaspard’s 10-year-old son was rescued, and several other swimmers made it out of the water.
He was best known as part of the tag-team Cryme Time.
