Detectives investigate death of man at hospital

Homicide detectives were sent to a local hospital Wednesday to investigate a man’s death by unknown causes, authorities said.
The 38-year-old man’s name was not released pending notification of his family members, sheriff’s and coroner’s officials said.
He died just after 9 a.m. at Garfield Medical Center in Monterey Park, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Larry Dietz said.
The man was taken to Garfield Medical Center from Ingleside Hospital in Rosemead, 7500 E. Hellman Ave., according to sheriff’s officials.
The dead man was reportedly from Murrieta and a psychiatric patient being treated at the Rosemead facility, according to wire services. He was hospitalized in Monterey Park after suffering facial trauma.
Coroner’s and sheriff’s officials could not confirm those details late Wednesday.
The investigation now hinges on the results of an autopsy to be performed by the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner over the next few days, Lt. Gil Carillo of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau said.
