Man's body found tied to tree near Harvard-Westlake School

 A man’s body was discovered Friday tied to a tree near Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City, authorities said.

Police were called around 8:15 a.m. to the 3700 block of Coldwater Canyon Boulevard, near the private high school campus, said LAPD spokesman Richard French.

L.A. County coroner’s investigator Mario Sainz said the man, who appeared to be “around 30,” was pronounced dead at the scene. He said the body has not been identified, and it was unclear Friday afternoon if foul play or suicide were involved.

No further information was immediately available, officials said.
