Los Angeles Times - - CALIFORNIA - — An­gel Jen­nings

The Los An­ge­les County Sher­iff ’s Depart­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death of a man whose de­cay­ing body was found in­side a van parked at a shop­ping cen­ter in Nor­walk.

Au­thor­i­ties re­ceived a call around 5 p.m. Fri­day re­port­ing a foul odor emit­ting from a gray and white van parked at the Nor­walk Shop­ping Cen­ter, Lt. Eric Smith­son said.

The ve­hi­cle had been in the same spot for sev­eral days, the caller re­ported.

The man did not have any iden­ti­fi­ca­tion on him, and there were no vis­i­ble signs of wounds, Smith­son said.

“The body had been there more than sev­eral days,” he said. Of­fi­cers found “de­cay on the body,” he said.

Homi­cide de­tec­tives and the coro­ner’s of­fice are work­ing to de­ter­mine the cause of death.
