Nicholas Sage Coronado-Watermen

Grover Beach police have identified the 25-year-old resident suspected of murdering a man in his 30s early Monday morning as Nicholas Sage Coronado-Watermen.

Shortly after midnight, officers responded to a report of an injured man at a shopping center located at 1800 Grand Avenue near the corner of Oak Park Boulevard. Officers arrived to find a man in the parking lot suffering from blunt force trauma.

First responders then transported the victim to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Both the victim and the suspect knew each other and lived in the area.

Officers arrested Coronado-Watermen and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on a charge of murder in lieu of $1 million bail.

Grover Beach police are currently withholding the identity of the victim until they notify his next of kin.


It makes me sick to think how long we’re on the hook for supporting losers like this.
