Authorities received a call at 6:30 a.m. about a body found at the Facey Medical Group, 11211 Sepulveda Boulevard, in Mission Hills.
The unidentified man — a building janitor — apparently suffered a puncture wound in his upper body, police said. His name was not released.
The body was found by a building security guard.
Late Friday, police named a suspect in the murder.
Officials believe the killer is Jesus Maldonado and they believe he may have already fled the country.
A man, who said he was the victim’s cousin, identified the dead man as Florentino Reyes, 41, a father of two.
Sources told KCAL9’s Suraya Fadel that the two men worked together. The sources also told Fadel that they believed Maldonado killed Reyes over the affections of a woman. Maldonado and Reyes were co-workers.
