Suicide suspected after body found in Arcadia

ARCADIA — A man is believed to have committed suicide early Friday in an Arcadia parking lot.
Hsienmin Kuo, 58, of Temple City was pronounced dead at the scene, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Chief of Operations Craig Harvey said.
Police received a call about 8 a.m. reporting a “possible suicidal subject” in a business area in the 500 block of Las Tunas Drive, Arcadia police Sgt. Dan Crowther said in a written statement.
As officers were en route, he said, a second call informed them that the person appeared to be dead.
Officials found the body of the man underneath a stairwell in a parking lot, Lt. Colleen Flores said.
“Preliminary investigation revealed the victim died of apparent self-inflicted injuries,” Crowther said.
The injuries were initially reported as stab wounds, coroner’s officials said.
Coroner’s investigators will conduct an autopsy to determine the official cause of death.
