The body discovered behind CVS was determined to be a 24-year-old man who'd committed suicide, she said. He was reported missing by his family last Tuesday.
"We treat every crime scene equally," said Martin, noting officers discovered no sign of foul play or other circumstances that would lead them to believe a crime was committed. She said the department gathered information from family and friends that supported the evidence of a suicide.
The 24-year-old was not a Manhattan Beach resident.
