Here's a link from the Monterey Herald about him:
Diver found dead off Monastery Beach

A 22-year-old male scuba diver has died in the waters off Carmel's Monastery Beach this morning.
Rescue workers tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the man, after he was towed to shore at about 10 a.m. The man was diving with two other men. All three were "very experienced" divers according to a state park official.

There's also a thread on Scubaboard about him with posts from his brother and father:

Damn, my heart goes out to his family. 250' is pretty damn deep. Must have been tech-divers.

Yes, they were tech divers. I knew Correy personally. He worked at Anywater Sports in San Jose. He's also the guy I sold my first dryuit to. He's a really cool guy. Alway very helpful in and out of the shop.

Yes, my condolences indeed! I've done 180' there on air and thought that was crazy enough! 250'? Can't say I care to ever venture that deep! What a tragedy! Super sad!
