Does someone want to tell me what this persons weight had to do with anything. It was reported in more that one news source also. How is it that describing this persons body style possibly, profiling has any bearing on anything.

A few days ago, the Pismo Beach police department announced that their investigation has shown the incident to be a suicide. I’m surprised Cal Coast News hasn’t updated the story. Even the Tribune has beat Cal Coast News on this one.
