Woman Found Dead On Newport Beach Identified

Posted: Updated:

NEWPORT BEACH (CNS) - A woman found dead face-down on the beach Monday was identified today as a 20-year-old Bellflower resident.

Tina Hoang was found near lifeguard Tower 71, near Highland Street, about 6 a.m. Monday by two people out walking, according to Kathy Lowe of the Newport Beach Police Department.

Police have termed Hoang's death "suspicious," but the cause of death has been withheld, Lowe said, pending the results of toxicology tests.

Hoang's attorney, David Nisson, said his client gave birth in January and was facing multiple charges of prostitution. Hoang was scheduled to be in court Friday in Van Nuys.

Hoang was facing a misdemeanor count of loitering to commit prostitution in Anaheim. She was due in court on that charge March 28 at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.

Nisson was representing Hoang in 10 cases, including six that were open and the others probation violations, he said.

Hoang was arrested Feb. 24 and was released Feb. 27 when she posted bond, according to jail records.

"She was very nice, very polite," Nisson said.

Anyone with more information as to how she died was asked to call Detective Garrett Fitzgerald at (949) 644-3797. Anonymous tips can be left by calling (800) 550-NBPD.

    Dance raves for kids at NYC's hot clubs

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
