Man found dead at Pismo Beach Motel 6 identified
August 14, 2013
The Pismo Beach Police Department has identified a man who died last week at Motel 6 as 28-year-old Christopher “Duke” Shibley.
Shibley was a resident of the Central Coast but did not have a permanent address.
Police found his body in a room at the Pismo Beach Motel 6 on August 8. Prior to officers arriving, Shibley’s fiance performed CPR but did not succeed in reviving him.
Investigators say the death is suspicious, but Shibley may have accidentally overdosed on prescription medication.
A toxicology report is pending.
