Suisun City investigators seek answers about possible drowning victim
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.
