Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Richard Bam­mer rbam­mer@there­ @REBam­mer on Twit­ter Con­tact re­porter Richard Bam­mer at (707) 4538164.

Re­spond­ing to a Sun­day af­ter­noon call, Suisun City fire­fight­ers and po­lice of­fi­cers found a 33-year-old man’s body par­tially in the wa­ter near the light­house along the city’s his­toric wa­ter­front.

The Solano County Coro­ner’s Of­fice on Mon­day iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Ter­ra­men Ross, of Bak­ers­field, and coro­ner of­fi­cials con­firmed an au­topsy had been per­formed but had not re­leased any find­ings.

Suisun City Fire Chief Justin Vin­cent said Mon­day, he was first on the scene shortly af­ter 2 p.m. and found Ross’ body along the shore­line and not float­ing en­tirely in the wa­ter.

The coro­ner sub­se­quently ar­rived to as­sist

Suisun City po­lice of­fi­cers in the body’s re­cov­ery, ac­cord­ing to the Suisun City Fire Depart­ment’s Face­book page.

Vin­cent said he ini­tially con­sid­ered the death as a pos­si­ble drown­ing but is not rul­ing out any other causes as he and in­ves­ti­ga­tors await au­topsy re­sults.

Ross’ death on or near Solano County wa­ters is the sec­ond in as many months. A 62-year-old Ione man, Ran­dall Hacker, is be­lieved to have drowned Feb. 2 in slough wa­ters south of Griz­zly Is­land. His body has yet to be found.

With Ross’ death, Vin­cent once again re­minded the pub­lic about the im­por­tance of wear­ing a life jacket when­ever in, on or around the wa­ter.
