LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A male transient whose body was found on the Los Angeles Country Club golf course next to the Playboy Mansion died from a fall out of a tree, a coroner’s office captain said Monday.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the man’s name was Anthony Washington, 36, of Santa Monica.

Capt. John Kades of the coroner’s office did not confirm the report because the man’s relatives have not been contacted.

Washington was detained at the mansion hours before his body was found Friday and may have been trying to get back on the grounds when he fell to his death, The Times reported, citing law enforcement sources.
