Great white shark’s death cause unclear

A marine biologist was unable to determine what killed the massive great white shark that washed up last weekend on a New England beach.

State biologist Greg Skomal performed a necropsy on the 1,600-pound male shark Saturday and found no signs of trauma.

The 13-foot shark was discovered by fisherman Gary Severa on the border of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

“It was pretty scary standing next to that thing … it made your adrenaline go cause he’s stone dead, but my God, it has jaws written all over it,” said Severa.
