He was discovered at the shoreline near Tower 19 at Bolsa Chica State Beach, adjacent to the campgrounds in Huntington Beach. He was taken to Huntington Beach Hospital, where he
later died. Here's a larger view of that drawing:

Honestly...what is wrong with you people.  At the very least, this was someone's son!  I find it so disheartening that people can be so cold and unfeeling as to make jokes about such a harsh reality.  Put yourself on the other side of this....you are a father, wondering why your son did not call on Father's Day, and you find this sketch in the paper, realizing he is your missing son....and then you read the attempts at humor below.  How classless and unfeeling.  You should be ashamed.

Why take them all the way to the ocean when an irrigation ditch works just as well?

That must be where the phrase "chocking the chicken" came from. I always wondered.......

Well,  If you had paid him the 3 months you owed him instead of threaten him with calling La Migra, he would have shown up.  Also,  I dont think he wanted to chock you while you masturbated any more.  He rather died, and he did.
