THE MEMORIAL went on, despite reports that began to circulate late last week a that Dr. Marc Abrams, known as “The Walking Man” was embroiled in legal issues, stemming from the death of one of his patients by overdose of prescription drugs. All of this has now made Abrams a tricky figure to memorialize, however hundreds of people showed up in Silver Lake yesterday to walk Abrams’s 14-mile route and left notes, flowers and lit votive candles in his honor.
L.A. Times now reporting that Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has ruled Abrams’ death a suicide.
Marc Abrams, the doctor known as the “walking man” for his shirtless walks around Silver Lake, died by drowning himself in his hot tub, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Monday.
