    This is a picture of the sun setting over the Carribean Ocean in Jamaica. It was taken in May 2008 during our honeymoon.

     The San Mateo County coroner has identified a man who authorities  found dead in a car as 50-year-old Gonzalo Martinez-Hernandez,  of East Palo Alto.
         
    Authorities responded to a call at around 9 a.m. from a motorist  who stopped to take pictures next to state Route 35, about a mile south of  state Route 92, and saw a possible vehicle about 80 feet down an embankment,  Redwood City CHP spokesman Art Montiel said.

    When they arrived at the vehicle, authorities discovered the dead  body of a man in the rear of the car near the hatchback, Montiel said.

    There were no obvious signs of foul play, so authorities are  handling the incident as a collision at this time.

    One theory is that Hernandez survived the crash and was trying to get out of the back hatch when he died.
