Human Remains Found at Suspected Lennox Drug House
The body investigators believe could be that of a man missing for two months has been excavated from the backyard of a home in Lennox, according to the Daily Breeze. The residence, says LA Now, is a "suspected drug house." 53-year-old James Stein was one of the tenants of the dilapidated home on 112th Street near Inglewood Avenue, and was reported missing on December 17th.An area resident described Stein as a "hippie." Numerous people were still living in the home as of about a week ago. Authorities describe a disturbing incident from mid-January that raised a red flag about the property:
Two people who were acquainted with the other renters went to the home on Jan. 12 and asked to borrow a truck because they wanted to move "a body or bodies" [...] When they were refused, they tied up and assaulted the renters, who escaped and filed a police report.
One of the pair allegedly involved in the incident has been arrested, and directed authorities to the home's backyard, while the second is considered a person of interest in the case.
