Man Found Stabbed To Death Inside Apartment Near Beverly Center

UPDATE (11:00 p.m.): Police have few leads and no suspect. Neighbors tell CBS2’s Suraya Fadel they heard nothing suspicious.

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A man in his 50s has been found stabbed to death inside his apartment, walking distance to the Beverly Center.

The discovery was made by police about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, said Officer Cleon Joseph of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

Police were sent to the victim’s apartment in the 400 block of South Le Doux Road after co-workers reported him missing.

Police said the man was stabbed multiple times.

Neighbors told CBS2’s Suraya Fadel the man was relatively new to the building. One neighbor told her, “he has been here like a year and a half.”

She was also told the victim was a server at Jerry’s Famous Deli in Marina Del Rey.

    Saying the killing took place “near” Cedars Sinai or the Beverly Center is lazy reporting. You might as well say it took place near LACMA or the La Brea Tar Pits, since that’s also about a mile away from the murder scene. If CBS2 wanted to be accurate AND sensationalistic they should’ve located the murder as “just outside Beverly Hills,” which it is by two blocks. That would draw readers like moths to a light bulb.

    Usually crime reports (especially murders) are linked to neighborhood names to highlight crime patterns. So linking this to “Beverly Hills” is way off base. The Beverly Center is the main landmark for this neighborhood. 50’s is to young to go. Hope LAPD can solve this.

    I live three blocks from the scene of the crime..I am really surprised an act of violence like this would happen in that area..its very safe..I am so sorry for the victim and the victims family..I hope that the police are able to solve this crime soon.
    Oh and the area is not known as “Beverly Grove” as I saw on the bottom of the screen last night, its “Beverly Hills Adj” that is what we call that area around here..its not Beverly Hills and its not West Hollywood, its on the border of Beverly Hills so that is what we call it. My condolences to the family of the victim
