Police Looking To Identify Dead Bicyclist

LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  The coroner’s office is asking for the public’s help to identify a bicyclist who died last month in South Los Angeles.

The man was a Latino or white who appears to be over 50 years old. He was 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 155 pounds and crew cut gray hair.

The man was seen riding a bicycle at the southeast corner of Florence and Central avenues in South Los Angeles about 5 p.m. on Nov. 28. Officials say the man lost control, fell from the bicycle, and his head struck a metal pole before he hit the ground.

The man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

John Doe 206 was wearing a brown jacket, a white XL shirt, tan pants with a waistline of 34, black shoes and a brown with white metal buckled belt.

Anyone with information on the man was asked to call Investigator Daniel Machian at (323) 343-0754.
