A lifeless body has been found near where former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard went missing on Sunday. The discovery was found overnight.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the body is believed to be Gaspard. The body was found near a lifeguard tower early Wednesday morning.
The authorities were called to the scene at approximately 1:45 am local time to Lifeguard Tower 26. Two people, who were walking the beach at low tide, discovered the body around 1:30 am.
The authorities said that the body “matched the description of Gaspard.” There was no signs of foul play.
The rescue effort was called off on Tuesday after two days of searching for his body. He went missing after a big wave hit him.
Before he went under, he instructed the lifeguards to save his 10-year-old son first. His drowning — if this is confirmed to be him — comes just days after California opened up the beaches following a ban due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The body was discovered approximately a half mile north of where he discovered. Former and current wrestlers, who knew Gaspard, was going to the scene these past few days to be there for his family during his difficult time and talk about the search effort.
Lillian Garcia, former WWE announcer, got very emotional when she talked about his disappearance on Tuesday. Gaspard competed in the WWE from 2006-2010.
He is mostly remembered for his time in the company as a tag team competitor with JTG as Cryme Tyme. After leaving wrestling behind, he appeared in TV, movies, and video game projects.
