WWE Star Shad Gaspard Reportedly Dead At 39; Body Found On Venice Beach After He Goes Missing 3 Days Ago
Three days ago, WWE star Shad Gaspard had gone out for a swim in Venice beach along with his 10-year-old son. As they were out swimming, a rip current hit and they were stranded. Lifeguards dived in immediately to rescue the swimmers. However, they could not locate Shad who first signaled the lifeguards to save his 10-year-old son. Now, three days after he goes missing, L.A. Fire Department has found a body whose description matches that of the WWE wrestler.

As reported by TMZ, two locals found a body washed up to the shore of the Venice beach at 1.30 am. They then called the cops who recovered the body right near Venice Pier. In a news conference held on Wednesday, the L.A. Fire Department stated that the body matches the description of the wrestler - 6'6" tall, black male who is over 240 lbs. The official Twitter handle of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Lifeguard Division tweeted, "#PierIC at 2:19AM @lacolifeguards @LACOFD @LAPDHQ respond to #VenicePier to a report of a body along the shoreline that matches the description of Sunday’s missing swimmer. Crews on-scene extricate from the water and transfer to @lacountymec."

Reportedly, Shad's wife was also spotted at the beach post the body was discovered. As the news of him going missing made it to the headlines, Dwayne The Rock Johnson took to Twitter to extend support to Shad's family. He wrote, "My prayers and hope for Shad Gaspard’s wife, son and family during this unthinkable time. Man, this is a tough one. A really tough one. Great guy."
