(UPDATE 11:15 a.m.) – A sheriff’s sergeant on scene confirmed to KSBY News that Monday’s “evidence-based search” was related to last week’s homicide. More information is expected to be released later in the day Monday.


ORIGINAL STORY: San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Dive Team members were suiting up in Oceano Monday morning.

While sheriff’s officials confirmed some of the team was there along Juanita Avenue near Lakeside Avenue, they have not yet said whether it was in connection with the death investigation involving Lawrence Albert Bross.

The 90-year-old’s body was found in his home along the 1400 block of Strand Way Thursday.

Investigators ruled his death a homicide and were on scene into Friday night working to collect evidence in the case.

So far, no arrests have been made.
