The Los Angeles County coroner announced this morning that Marc Abrams – Silver Lake’s famed Walking Man – drowned himself in the hot tub of his Moreno Drive home, the Los Angeles Times reports. “He was found in the Jacuzzi with the Jacuzzi lid pulled over the Jacuzzi itself,” Ed Winter, assistant chief of the Department of Coroner Investigations, told the Times. “There was no suicide note found.”
On Sunday, several hundred people walked through Silver Lake to honor the memory of Abrams, who often strolled the neighborhood shirtless while reading a folded newspaper. The 58-year-old doctor died while he was under investigation in connection with the overdose of one of his patients.
