Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard found dead days after he was lost while swimming

Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard’s body washed up on Venice Beach on Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Country coroner’s office confirmed. Gaspard went missing Sunday, after he was caught in a rip current while swimming at the beach. He was 39.

Gaspard’s body was found by two individuals walking on the beach early Wednesday. Officials said the body matched Gaspard’s description.

The coroner’s office later confirmed the body was Gaspard’s.

Gaspard went missing after he and his 10-year-old son were caught in a rip current while swimming. Lifeguards went out to help the pair, and Gaspard reportedly told them to assist his son first. They were able to rescue Gaspard’s son, but Gaspard was caught in the current and submerged under water.

After searching for Gaspard for three days, the Coast Guard called off the search for Gaspard on Tuesday.
