Dennis Joseph Cauterucci, 60

Dennis Joseph Cauterucci, a 60-year-old white man, was found dead Wednesday, June 22 in the 1800 block of South Cochran Avenue in Mid-City, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 9:30 p.m., officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division responded to a welfare check and found Cauterucci in a room in his condo with stab wounds, said LAPD Lt. John Radtke.

Coroner’s officials said that Cauterucci was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:13 p.m.

Radtke said that neighbors were concerned after they hadn’t seen Cauterucci walking his dog, so they called police.  So far, police believe some sort of dispute occurred.

“People in the area did hear arguing,” Radtke said.
