Authorities have been working to find out the reason for dying of a person whose decomposing physique was discovered early Tuesday within the again seat of a automotive that had apparently been towed to the Westlake space.
Federico DiBartolo, 39, is believed to have been a transient, stated coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter.
Investigators have been working to find out if foul play was concerned, and an post-mortem was pending to find out the reason for his demise.
The physique was found at 2:10 a.m. within the 300 block of South Westlake Avenue, stated Officer Irma Mota of the Los Angeles Police Division’s Media Relations Division.
Residents stated the black Hyundai Elantra, which had an Uber sticker within the window, had been on the location for hours earlier than police arrived.
Space resident Marek Lewinski informed ABC7 of capturing what seemed to be a tow truck on surveillance video, dropping off the automotive in center of Westlake Avenue close to Maryland Road, then taking off about three p.m. Monday.
