Authorities Thursday identified the body found at the base of a cliff in the San Pedro area, but the cause of the deadly plunge remained a mystery.

Montebello resident Andres Marquez, 27, was found dead about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 800 block of West Paseo del Mar, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office and the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Officials said an autopsy was pending.

But they provided no further information, and they did not indicate whether they have any reason to believe the death was an accident, suicide or murder.
