Woman Found Dead in Pool Identified

Police say no signs of foul play were discovered and that paramedics were unable to revive the 53-year-old woman Saturday morning.

A Long Beach resident has been identified as the woman found dead in a swimming pool at a Hermosa Beach property Saturday morning, according a Hermosa Beach police statement.

Trina Marie Heard-Broughton, 53, was found floating in a pool in the 2100 block of Loma Drive around 8 a.m. Hermosa paramedics were unable to revive her and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Heard-Broughton was visiting the homeowner, who was a friend, and had spent the night. Reportedly, she was not an "avid swimmer," "had consumed alcoholic beverages the night before" she was found dead and "was in possession of several medications," according to the statement, which also reported that no signs of foul play were discovered.

The official cause of death is pending an investigation by the Los Angeles County Coroner.
