Foul play not initially suspected in young Hacienda Heights man’s death

HACIENDA HEIGHTS — Foul play was not initially suspected in the “suspicious” death of a 20-year-old man found unconscious in his bedroom over the weekend.
Arnold Hernandez Gomez was pronounced dead shortly after he was discovered unresponsive by his parents about 4:30 p.m. Sunday in his bedroom in the 1400 block of Riderwood Avenue, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner’s Chief of Operations Craig Harvey said.
There were no initial signs of a crime, and no signs that drugs or alcohol were involved in the death, Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau said. Detectives are primarily looking into the case because of Gomez’s age.
Detectives suspected the young man may have suffered some type of medical condition, Corina said, however coroner’s officials planned an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
