CUDAHY (CBSLA) — Police were investigating a homicide along the Los Angeles River bike path in Cudahy Monday.
A Hispanic man in his late 30s was found shot to death on the bike path alongside the Los Angeles River, near Clara Street and River Road, just before 11 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
“I didn’t hear anything,” Alice, a Cudahy resident, said. “I was in my room studying with my music on pretty loudly.”
Alice lives just a few hundred feet from where the victim was found by a person walking on the path. That person called 911, detectives said.
“We need leads,” Sgt. Richard Biddle, with the LASD Homicide Bureau, said. “We need information, right now it’s lacking in our investigation.”
Homicide detectives said they don’t have a motive or suspect information, but they said there are transients who live in the riverbed and gang members who frequent the area. Biddle said he hopes nearby neighbors can help.
“There is residences around there so those are avenues we’re canvassing looking for cameras or any witnesses,” he said.
As for Alice, she said she was a little scared.
“We walk along the bike path pretty regularly,” she said. “But usually around the daytime; we’re not going to walk late at night.”
