Man's body found in skid row hotel
Although the investigation was in its preliminary stages, LAPD Lt. Paul Vernon said initial information led detectives to believe the man died of blunt-force trauma.
The man's body was found about 7:30 a.m. in a single-room occupancy building in the 600 block of Wall Street. Detectives were at the crime scene, interviewing potential witnesses.
