CAIRO – The U.S. authorities identified on Monday, Oct. 15 the Egyptian man, who was found dead by fishermen in the ocean off San Diego last week.
The authorities announced the man’s name is Abdel Kader el-Shayeb and that he is 37 years old. They are currently trying to identify the circumstances of his death and the homicide detectives were called in to investigate.
The authorities declared there was no obvious sign of injury on the man’s body but the cause of death remains under investigation.
Fishermen spotted the body of the man floating off last Wednesday, October 10, about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) off of Mission Beach.
Police referred that Shayeb was wearing surfer-style swim trunks and had a chain of less than half of an inch thick, wrapped around his waist.
In the same context, the Italian national who killed an Egyptian engineer in Hurghada in August 2017 was sentenced to three years in prison in absentia by the Red Sea Criminal Court.
Leonardis Ivan, as named in the case file, killed Tarek al-Hennawy in a famous resort in Marsa Alam, by striking him fatally in the face after the engineer refused to let him access an under-construction marina. Hennawy, who was responsible for the development, had a heart condition.
The Italian tourist, identified in 2017 press reports as Ivan Pascal Moro, was detained for four days at the time, but was released on bail of LE 100,000 ($5,580).
