Body found in Palo Alto Baylands identified

Robert Heath, 70, of Sunnyvale died of apparent suicide in November

A man who died at the Palo Alto Baylands on Nov. 20 has been identified as Robert Heath, 70, of Sunnyvale, the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner said Monday (Nov. 28).

Heath was discovered in the Baylands preserve, which is at the east end of Embarcadero Road, near the sailing station boat launch. The launch is in the northern part of the preserve, east of the Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center in the Harriet Mundy Marsh.

Heath died of an apparent suicide, police spokesman Lt. Zach Perron said earlier.

Palo Alto Online is reporting this incident because it occurred in a public space.

I am so sorry for the loved ones of Mr. Heath and I like to think that he perhaps has found peace.
