Yacht debris, bodies found off US-Mexico coast
Authorities have identified two of the three sailors found dead off the shore of Southern California and Mexico after their racing yacht apparently collided with a larger vessel.
The San Diego Medical Examiner's office said that the sailors were 57-year-old William Reed Johnson Jr. of Torrance, Calif., and 64-year-old Joseph Lester Stewart of Bradenton, Fla.
The name of the third sailor whose body was pulled from the waters has been withheld pending notification of relatives.
A fourth person who was aboard the 37-foot Aegean remains missing. The crew members were taking part in a 124-miler race that began Friday from Newport Beach, Calif. to Ensenada, Mexico.
Calls to Johnson's and Stewart's homes went unanswered.
