Man is found dead near Balboa Pier in Newport Beach
A 49-year-old man was found dead about half a mile from the Balboa Pier in Newport Beach, police said Thursday.
The body of Nino Nobles of Irvine was found about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday about 30 yards from the Coronado Street lifeguard tower, which is about half a mile from the Balboa Pier, according to coroner's and police reports.
There were no apparent signs of foul play, said Newport Beach Police Department spokeswoman Kathy Lowe.
An autopsy was scheduled Thursday, but no cause of death has been determined pending a toxicology report, which probably will take weeks, according to the Orange County coroner's office.
