Coroner identifies body found near Devil's Slide

 

The San Mateo County coroner's office has identified a body found Wednesday afternoon near Devil's Slide north of Montara as 20-year-old Steven Manners of Murray, Kentucky.

A hiker reported he saw a body about 150 feet down a cliff at 3:53 p.m., according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies and firefighters arrived at about 4 p.m. at an area along state Highway 1, about 100 yards south of the Tom Lantos Tunnel, sheriff's spokesman Salvador Zuno said.

Rescuers hiked down to Mr. Manners and pronounced him dead at 4:46 p.m.

Investigators do not know whether he fell down the cliff or was hiking near the area where he was found, more than halfway down to the beach. Mr. Zuno said preliminary information indicates there is no sign of foul play.
