Update #LASD Homicide Death Investigation in the 5100 Block of Vincent Avenue, Unincorporated Irwindale

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a man that was discovered on Friday, August 26, 2016, at approximately 9:00 am in the 5100 block of Vincent Avenue, unincorporated Irwindale.

Detectives have learned that at approximately 7:45 am, a truck driver picked up a load of dirt from downtown Los Angeles where construction is being done for a new building.  When the truck driver dumped the dirt in a quarry in the 5100 block of Vincent Avenue in the county area of Irwindale, he discovered the victim’s body mixed in with the dirt.

 Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detectives are investigating how the victim came to be in the truck.  There doesn’t appear to be any trauma to the victim and no foul play is suspected at this time.  It’s possible the victim may have climbed into the back of the dump truck without anyone knowing and the dirt was dumped on top of him. 

The victim hasn’t been identified yet, but he is described as a male Black, 20-30 years old.

The cause of death and identity of the deceased will be determined by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

There is no further information at this time.
