“Spirit” a male white transient was reported deceased across from the 7-11 on Lincoln and Palms today. Apparently he died two days ago and his “crew” left him on the sidewalk because it was so busy with Memorial Day traffic – and they wanted to “honor him” (?) by leaving him in “peace” . The local security guard learned of his death from the local drunks and reported it. He was said to be about 50ish, and liked coffee and PBR.
LAPD will wait on scene until the coroner arrives. Could be hours.
