A Dead Great White Shark on a Santa Cruz Beach Leads to a Criminal Investigation

When one of the ocean's top predators washes up dead on a beach, it's likely that something fishy must have happened. On Sunday (June 17), beachgoers found a juvenile male great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), weighing 500 lbs. (225 kilograms) and reaching 8 feet (2.4 meters) long, on Beer Can Beach in Aptos, California, near Santa Cruz, reported KION.
