A vigil was held on Saturday night for Beau Mann, a chief technology officer who was found murdered under mysterious circumstances. Mann’s body was discovered in Santa Monica on May 8, almost a year and a half after he went missing. On November 30, 2021, Mann was last seen at a 7-Eleven in Studio City when an Uber picked him up from the store and dropped him off on Berkeley Street in Santa Monica.
