Looks like a Cheetah 27 isn't it?

What the hell happened to it? And a homicide? Yikes.

edit: okay - maybe a 30

I'm guessing there is evidence strong enough to call it a homicide, i.e. bullet holes, blood, etc. I doubt they would be calling it if there wasn't something obvious on there.

Jesus, the poor guy... Maybe he ran into something he wasn't meant to see and he was "taken care of" ?

Hope they find him soon.

I have never met the man, but damn I'm sorry to hear this. Only time will tell but I can think of several scenarios that would make the cops suspicious without involving murder, especially if he took the boat out for a test run and was dismasted offshore. Keeping fingers crossed, he may still be alive out there in a PFD.

Many police agencies employ homicide detectives to investigate these types of cases. The Sheriff's Department spokesman in the video merely said "Homicide investigators are investigating the incident." There is a big difference between a death being investigated "as a homicide" (as the reporter in the video claims) and being investigated "by homicide investigators." I don't know anything about this particular case, but it may be that (surprise) the media made an assumption based on a misunderstanding of the involvement of homicide investigators.

The OC Register, for example, does not mention the homicide possibility, and its story was posted after the CBS video. http://www.ocregiste...g-amormino.html

Why not? There were floating bales of marijauna recovered off of Dana Point earlier this year.

A panga full of illegals came ashore while we were surfing in El Porto a few weeks ago, so there is plenty of stuff going on offshore. Ironically the boat that came through the line-up found one of the only fences on the entire beach. (By a power plant)
