Woman identified in cliff death

Authorities released the name Monday of a woman found dead at the base of Sunset Cliffs over the weekend.

A passer-by spotted the body of 41-year-old Kristan Wagner while walking near the terminus of Carmelo Street shortly after 1:30 p.m. Sunday, the county Medical Examiner’s Office reported.

Wagner apparently had fallen to her death from one of the oceanfront bluffs in the scenic area south of Ocean Beach, according to San Diego lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum.

Her death was ruled an accident, a coroner’s investigator said.
