LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say the body of a man was found floating off Venice Beach.

Los Angeles County Lifeguards Capt. Kenichi Haskett says the man’s body was discovered around 2 p.m. Monday, and he was believed to have been in an inflatable boat that came ashore in the area.

Sgt. Amore Smith, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department, said homicide detectives were investigating the cause of the man’s death, but that doesn’t mean foul play is suspected.

Haskett said the man did not drown, and may have been in a boating accident. He was in the water during thick fog and high surf that reached up to 6 feet.
