Miguel Angel Castillo-Vega, a 49-year-old Latino, was found dead Friday, Nov. 24, in the 200 block of South Alexandria Avenue in Koreatown, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.
About 9:30 a.m., one of Castillo-Vega’s roommates found his body in the apartment they shared, said Los Angeles Police Det. John Lamberti.
Castillo-Vega was pronounced dead at 9:55 a.m. at the scene, according to coroner’s records. Records show that Castillo-Vega died from blunt head trauma.
Detectives believe that the previous evening, Castillo-Vega was hanging out at a bar and went to grab more beer from a local gas station with another man, Lamberti said.
The two then went back to Castillo-Vega’s apartment. It remains unclear what happened inside the apartment, Lamberti said. He declined to say what type of weapon was used in the attack.
