Discovery of Tech Pioneer’s Remains Over a Year Post-Mysterious Vanishing: A World Shaper’s Untold Story
The search for Beau Mann, who vanished in November 2021, has been tirelessly pursued by his close ones.
The long-sought tech CEO, for whom family and friends have been frantically searching for over eighteen months, has been discovered at a deserted estate in the vicinity of Los Angeles.
Santa Monica police have been tight-lipped regarding the specifics of Beau Mann’s discovery and the suspected cause of his death. They announced on a Monday Facebook post that they received a call alerting them to the presence of human remains in the courtyard of a deserted property, but offered little else. The late tech CEO was just 39 at the time of his disappearance.
The county coroner now has possession of Mann’s remains and will be responsible for determining the cause of his death.
Final Sighting of Mann Dated Back to November 2021
The Los Angeles Police Department reports that Mann’s final sighting occurred outside a Studio City convenience store at 2:06 p.m. on November 30, 2021. Within a mere span of less than 10 minutes, at 2:15 p.m., Mann sent a text message to 911, the department revealed.
The police have yet to respond to a request from USA TODAY, which was made on Tuesday, seeking additional details about the property where Mann was discovered and whether any foul play is being considered.
Mann held the roles of co-founder and CEO at Sober Grid, a social network platform designed to support individuals in recovery from, and coping with addiction.
Battling addiction in his early years, Mann established the company in 2016 with the aim to create an online support network and resource for individuals sharing his experiences, as shared by his fiancé, Jason Abate, in a conversation with NBC’s “Dateline” the previous year.
Abate expressed his admiration, saying, “I don’t want to sound overly dramatic but he’s kind of changed the world.”
Following the disappearance of his fiancé, Abate took it upon himself to find him. He utilized a popular TikTok account to publicize Mann’s case and initiated a Facebook group named Help Find Beau Mann.
Upon learning about Mann’s demise, Abate made a heartfelt post on the group’s page: “Now, I think that I should have known that he was magic all along,” he wrote. “I did know it ‒ but I should have guessed that it would be too much to ask to grow old with and see our children grow up together. So now, he is a legend when he would have preferred to be a man.”
USA TODAY’s request for an interview with Abate did not receive an immediate response.
In a past conversation with “Dateline”, Abate revealed that he and Mann were managing a long-distance relationship and had plans to marry in June 2022. He recalled his last conversation with Mann occurred the day prior to his disappearance.
“He told me he loved me, and he wanted to adopt children with me,” he reflected. “That was the last message I ever got from him.”
Sandy Eggers, who regards herself as a kind of godmother to Mann, expressed her sentiments on the Facebook page created for his search. She reminisced about Mann’s smile that will “always light us up.”
“So many fond memories,” she wrote. “You are missed and will always be remembered.”
In a statement shared with USA TODAY, Mann’s family expressed their gratitude towards everyone who participated in the search for him over the past eighteen months.
“Beau was a beautiful soul who dedicated a significant part of his life to aiding others,” the family’s statement articulated. “His infectious smile and upbeat attitude are missed daily. We believe his spirit will perpetuate through his company and his ardor, Sober Grid, continuing to assist those wrestling with the clutches of addiction.”
