A story for every victim

Carey Snyder, 63

Carey Snyder, a 63-year-old white man, was stabbed to death Thursday, Dec. 29, in the 5800 block of North Figueroa Street in Highland Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

A security guard on patrol found Snyder with multiple stab wounds outside a strip mall about 12:55 a.m., said Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Bruce Borihanh.

Paramedics were called and pronounced Snyder dead at the scene.

No one saw the assailant, and it was unknown what the motive for the killing might have been, Borihanh said.

The victim appeared to be a transient, he said.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to contact Northeast Division homicide detectives at (323) 344-5744. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (800) 222-8477.
