Man, woman found dead in Marina del Rey is ruled suicide, homicide

Authorities say the deaths of a woman whose body was found on a Marina del Rey boat and a man whose body was found in a vehicle nearby Thursday evening have been ruled as homicide and suicide.

The incident was reported at around 11:10 p.m., when deputies responded to the marina in the 14000 block of Tahiti Way to conduct a welfare check on a boat, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. 

Upon arrival, deputies found a woman's body on the boat. Authorities say her death has been listed as a homicide.

"During the investigation, a member of the community, familiar with individuals who lived on the boat, alerted the Los Angeles Police Department to a vehicle parked nearby on the 100 block of Via Marina," the LASD statement said. 

They found a man dead inside of the car, which was connected to the people who lived on the boat. 

On Sunday, authorities revealed that the man, 33-year-old Kevin Nelson Jr., had died from strangulation. They ruled the death as suicide. 

The woman's identity has not yet been released. 

"There are no outstanding suspects," deputies said. 

Anyone with additional information is urged to contact investigators at (323) 890-5500.
