The Los Angeles Times has reported that the body discovered inside a sealed barrel at a Southern California beach has been identified as Javonnta Murphy, a local rap artist from Sylmar.

The body was found naked and concealed inside a 55-gallon drum at Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Initially, a maintenance worker found the barrel on Sunday but did not open it.

The origin of the barrel and whether it was brought in by the tide remains unclear. Witnesses have claimed to have seen it in the water at the beach on Saturday.
