Dead Man Mistaken for Halloween Decorations
For four days, 74-year-old Mostafa Mahmoud Zayed was seen slumped over his balcony in Marina del Rey. Neighbors, who saw him on Monday, didn't think much of it--it was a dummy for Halloween, after all.
Oh snap, it wasn't! He allegedly committed suicide.
On Thursday evening, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies were called to his home and found a gunshot to his head. "... Everything is pointing to it being a suicide," an investigator said. An autospy is scheduled for Saturday.
