A story for every victim

Eduardo Jorge Triana, 35

Eduardo Triana, a 35-year-old Latino, was stabbed to death Wednesday, April 13, in the 800 block of Hill Street in downtown Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Police said witnesses reported that Triana and two men were fighting near the Chase bank branch on Hill Street about 2 a.m. when Triana was stabbed at least once.

Two men carrying trash bags ran from the scene, officials said.

"We don't know if this was a robbery or just a dispute," said Lt. Paul Vernon of the Los Angeles Police Department.

A security guard from another building discovered the man's body two hours later, officials said.

"I'm confident we will solve this," Vernon said. "Someone on the street knows what happened."

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Al Marengo of the Central Homicide Unit at (213) 972-1249. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477)
