From Yo! Venice! friend Jonathan Alcorn:
Details are sketchy but according to maxtaves on Twitter, “A young man is lying dead on the Venice Boardwalk. Bystanders report he jumped to his death from roof. Location: Ocean Front + Paloma”. Firefighters and Police are on scene as of 10:45 am.
Update: I was sent some cel phone pictures. The body appears to be of a white male, black or dark blue sweatshirt, tan khakis, dark socks pulled high with grey tops on them. Reports are that he jumped from The Venice Suites Hotel, but the body was closer to the A & J Gift Shop in front of the glass house that they are doing a web series in that has a couple of video cameras stationed on the top.
