UPDATE: Per the watch commander at Pacific Division, the dead man was about 29 and the death was an overdose.
The body of a 35ish yr old male hispanic was found deceased by the bathrooms at Brooks and Ocean Front Walk today around 5:30 p.m. He was said to be a transient that frequented that area and the drum circle. LAPD did not think the death was suspicious, as in no foul play… but they said it may be drug related. The bathrooms are what is referred to as a “shooting gallery” – a place where junkies go to shoot up or smoke meth.
The coroner was called and isn’t expected to arrive until mid-evening. Will post more when I get more info.
