“He has been identified but we have had no confirmation of next of kin being notified,” said Craig Harvey, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner’s office. “He has not been examined so we don’t know what we’re dealing with. (The case) came to the coroner as a suicide versus homicide.”

While initial reports said the cause of death was suicide, the investigation remains ongoing, according to officials.
