Officials have disclosed that the lifeless body of a naked man discovered inside a large drum on a beach in Malibu, California, had died from a gunshot wound to the head. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has identified the deceased individual as 32-year-old Javonnta Marshann Murphy. Initially, the cause of death was undisclosed, but it has now been revealed that the fatal gunshot wound to the head was the cause of his demise. The Los Angeles Times reported this on Saturday. The investigation into this mysterious case is still ongoing. The body of Murphy was found sealed within a 55-gallon black plastic barrel that was initially spotted floating in a Malibu lagoon on July 30. A maintenance worker retrieved the barrel later, but it was not immediately opened. The barrel was eventually opened on July 31 by a lifeguard at Malibu Lagoon State Beach after it had been washed back into the lagoon. The circumstances surrounding Murphy’s death and how long his body had been in the drum remain unclear as authorities continue to examine the case.
