Writer and blogger Jay Bushman was passing by 3rd and Hill Streets this morning when he saw some police activity. "Just drove past a crime scene at 3rd & Hill. Dead body on the corner, covered by a sheet," he wrote on Twitter. The LAPD is handling this as a death investigation because there is no evidence of homicide yet. "Someone may have possibly fallen and hit their head," explained Officer Ana Aguirre. "It looks like it's possibly a transient." Update: Downtown News says it appears to be a suicide.
