San Diego Police Ask for Help Tracing Man's Last Moments Alive

San Diego police are asking the public’s help to track the final moments of a man’s life before he was found dead in the ocean near San Diego. 

Haitham Elshayeb, 37, of Egypt was found off the coast of Mission Beach on Oct. 10.

Elshayeb may have used the nickname “Max” according to police.

A fisherman first spotted the Elshayeb roughly 2.5 miles offshore. Investigators have released his identity but they still know little about what led to his death.

Elshayeb was wearing board shorts and there was a chain wrapped around his waist, police said. The chain was less than half of an inch thick.

Images released by police show Elshayeb had extensive tattoos on his left shoulder and upper arm. 

The SDPD Homicide Unit is currently investigating it as a suspicious death.

Anyone with information about Elshayeb and his whereabouts prior to Oct. 10 can contact San Diego police detectives at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
