Tovar was found lying in the street on Sept. 14 with blunt-force injuries, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office. Tovar was taken to a hospital, where he told doctors he was beaten with a baseball bat, Winter said.
Tovar died in the hospital four days later at 6:30 p.m. No suspect information was available.
