The body of a missing Orinda teenager was found in Annadel State Park Saturday by Santa Rosa Police.
Police believe that James Abriel, 19, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A gun was found near the body of Abriel, which police believe may be the handgun that was reported missing upon Abriel’s disappearance.
Abriel was reported missing on April 25 by a friend in Walnut Creek after the friend discovered what appeared to be a suicide note written by Abriel.
Abriel graduated from Miramonte High School as part of the class of 2010. He also attended Orinda Intermediate School and Wagner Ranch Elementary School while growing up in Orinda.
