On November 30, 2021, the 39-year-old computer entrepreneur was last seen in CCTV footage recorded at a cornershop.

The human remains were discovered on April 25 and identified as Mr. Mann’s on May 6.

The victim’s fiancé, Jason Abate, last heard from him the night before he vanished. They were in a long-distance romance and planning to marry in June 2022.

Mr Mann created Sober Grid, an app that assists addicts in overcoming their addiction.

Mr Abate became concerned when his texts stopped being delivered, and he ultimately contacted Los Angeles police to do a welfare check.Police told the worried fiance that they required someone else to be present at Mr Mann’s flat to do the check.

Mr Abate notified Mr Mann’s assistant, but when they arrived, they were unable to locate the missing individual.

The Uber driver was probed, but investigators concluded that no foul play occurred.

At 2.35 p.m., he was left off on Berkeley Street in Santa Monica.

His corpse was discovered approximately a mile from where his Uber driver had dumped him off.

An investigator on the case admitted they did receive a 911 message from Mr Mann and “several attempts were made to contact [him] via that correspondence.”

A witness who lives nearby the scene where the body was found described the moment the coroner arrived to take the remains.

Roy Mooneyham told NBC: “The body was found right over here. Police were originally standing above it and taking pictures of it.

“I watched him fold that body bag up onto the table. A body wouldn’t fold like that unless it was a skeleton.”

The cause of death is unknown but investigations from the Santa Monica Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division and the LA County’s Coroner’s Office continue.

His fiance Mr Abate said: “I just hope that he didn’t suffer.”
