Fatality in the 1900 Block of Verdugo


Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. was called to the 1900 block of Verdugo Boulevard on Sunday morning to investigate a fatality after a man appeared to have jumped from the freeway overpass into the parking lot in the area.

LASD – Crescenta Valley Station received a call concerning the incident at 7:48 a.m. on March 24. There was a witness to the incident and a “passer-by” stopped to give aid to the victim until deputies arrived a short time after the initial call, according to Lt. Gonzalez, CV Sheriff’s Station.

It appeared to be a death by suicide at the time; however, the exact cause will not be determined until after the investigation, including the coroner’s report, is completed, according to Lt. Gonzalez.

The LA County medical examiner has released information that the victim was in his 60s. The office has not released any other information “pending legal next of kin notification.”
