The Manhattan Beach Police Department is currently conducting an investigation after the discovery of a woman’s body on the beach in the early hours of Friday morning. The body was found at approximately 10:10 a.m. near the 2300 block of The Strand by a vigilant lifeguard.
The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner has identified the deceased as Jennifer Hanie, a 31-year-old woman. The investigation began when Hanie’s friend reported her missing at around 6:40 a.m. on Friday, stating that he had last seen her near the water line. This report prompted an immediate response from the Manhattan Beach Police Department, who reached out to surrounding agencies for any additional information regarding the missing person.
In a joint effort, the Los Angeles County lifeguards and members of the United States Coast Guard conducted thorough searches both along the beach and in the ocean surrounding the area. The circumstances surrounding Hanie’s presence on the beach, including whether she washed ashore, remain unclear. However, initial information suggests that her body was located off the coast, near the 1300 block of the water line.
Positive identification of Hanie was made by the Manhattan Beach police through photographs and confirmation from her next of kin. As the investigation into her death continues, authorities are urging anyone with information related to the incident to come forward and contact the investigators at (310) 802-5123.
This devastating discovery and the events leading up to it have sparked intense scrutiny among officials as they work tirelessly to uncover the truth behind this tragic incident.
