Investigation of murder is underway after homeless man found with fatal injuries in Van Nuy’s parking lot

Authorities believe a homeless man who was found dead in a Van Nuys parking lot on Monday was the victim of a homicide.

The victim was found around 8:40 a.m. Monday in the structure of a building along 5700 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard, according to a press release from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Reacting officers suspected dishonesty may have been involved, and homicide detectives responded on the spot. It is unclear how long the victim’s body had been at the scene.
