"They are pulling a dead body out of the bay right now!!"

According to Crystal, "Humboldt Bay, Eureka side, where the HSU row team keeps their stuff. It's across from Woodley Island."

Will update when I hear more from HCSO.

Press Release(July 7):

On Sunday, July 2nd, at about 1100 in the morning, a Humboldt County Deputy Coroner responded to Waterfront Drive regarding the report of a deceased individual floating in Humboldt Bay. An autopsy of the individual, identified by fingerprints as Shane Christopher Barbion (DOB 11/30/1969), was completed today.

There were no signs of foul play observed and the cause of death appears to be drowning. Biological samples have been sent to the lab requesting a toxicology analysis. Barbion appears to have been from Eureka with past addresses in Trinity County and Nevada.
