LAPD Pacific Division officers were called to 1506 Venice Blvd at around 8 p.m. last night for a death investigation. It is believed that a request was made to do a welfare check on an individual living in one of the units at the apartment building address at that location, when a body was discovered. It was determined that the individual did not die of natural causes, and that the cause of death was due to possible unknown sexually related circumstances. It was indicated that the victim was a male in his 50’s. The case has been transferred to LAPD West Bureau Homicide. More info when we have it! In the meantime…. be aware….be safe.
