A body found in a small Santa Barbara County lake is that of a Southern California man who disappeared in the area several weeks ago.
A worker at the Alisal Guest Ranch spotted the body in a lake at the Santa Ynez Valley ranch Wednesday morning. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department is now saying it was Kurt Brimberry, a San Marino man who was last seen alive in mid-August. His car was found smashed into a tree a few miles away from the ranch August 18th.
How Brimberry died, and how he ended up in the lake are still unanswered questions. Department officials say it could be several weeks before autopsy results are complete.
