The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man found dead on an Isla Vista beach over the weekend as Alessandro Esquivel, 20, of Downey, California.

Sheriff’s officials say a determination on the cause of his death is pending toxicology and lab results, but they say it appears he died recently and there are no obvious signs of foul play.
