Police said there was no evidence pointing to suicide in the death of Southern California kicker Mario Danelo, whose body was found about 120 feet down a rocky cliff.

“I have no indication per se that it was a criminal event,” Lt. David Pierson, commanding officer of the LAPD Harbor Division detectives, told the Los Angeles Times. “But we exhaust all leads to ensure that we’re making the right categorization of the case.”

Pierson said investigators had information that Danelo was out with friends Friday night and that he was last seen around midnight. His body was found Saturday afternoon near Point Fermin lighthouse in the city’s San Pedro section.

Drunk and fell off the cliff maybe?

Could have been rock climbing I suppose. That's pretty popular out there.

I was thinking more along the lines of a car accident, but it was just him found at the bottom of the cliff? Did he have cement shoes?

Ditto, I was thinking the same exact thing.

The thing is that he may have been doing something a little more "extreme" and its hard to think that he was on a roadside standing near a cliff ALONE. I think somebody was there with him, freaked out went home and is scared to say what really happened. People just don't fall off Cliffs in the middle of the night alone. This story is going to grow legs
