Sea Releases Body of Man Drowned Here
Remains of Oakland man Drowned December 26 are Found
Coronerís Jury Says Itís Accident
Man Drowned Before Eyes of Relatives While at Midway Point
A verdict of death by accidental drowning was brought in this morning by the coronerís jury which held inquest over the remains of Miguel Pacheco at Freemanís funeral parlors here. Coroner J.A. Cornett conducted the inquest. The jury was composed as follows: William Tripp, A.C. Conham, C.A. Smith, R.E. Gorham, F.C. Keese, L.E. Halstead, A.L. Pawley, P.L. Goldstine, Frank Urquidez. The body of Miguel Pacheco, Oakland, who was drowned at Midway Point on the 17 Mile Drive December 16, was found yesterday afternoon floating on the surface of the water in a cove near where the tragedy occurred. The discovery was made by Bert Smith, an employee of C.W. Smith, Pebble Beach resident. The remains were battered so that the features were unrecognizable, but it is said the body can be identified by the clothes. The manís parents, Mr. and Mrs. Miguel Pacheco Sr., 731 Foam street, New Monterey, have been informed of the finding of the body. Word has also been sent his wife, Mrs. Augustina Sanchez Pacheco, 1475 Eighty-first avenue, Oakland. The remains were brought to Freemanís Undertaking parlors, Monterey, where Coroner J.A. Cornett of Salinas was slated to hold an inquest, at 10:30 oíclock this morning. Funeral services will be held tomorrow morning at 10 oíclock from San Carlos Catholic church, with the Right Reverence Monsignor Raymond M. Mestres officiating. Interment will take place at the Monterey Catholic cemetery. The death of Pacheco came as the tragic conclusion of a holiday picnic party at Pebble Beach the day following Christmas. The deceased, with his wife, two sisters, and two friends drove around the 17 Mile Drive, stopping at Midway Point, where they walked out toward the water. Pacheco clambered won the steep rocky sides of the point. Near the waterís edge he was caught by a huge wave which sucked him into the swirling breakers. Rescue attempts proved futile. Although valiant search was made for the body, it was not until yesterday that the sea gave up the remains. Besides his widow and parents the deceased leaves two sisters, Misses Carmen and Guadalupe Pacheco, living in Monterey.
