A decapitated body has been found this afternoon near the Kaiser Permanente facility in Culver City.

The body was found in the bushes adjacent to a parking structure, according to a live report on KCAL9.

Authorities in Culver City have launched what they are calling a "death investigation" but as of yet cannot say if the body is that of a murder victim.

UPDATE 4:45 PM: Very few details are known about the body, though it has been confirmed the victim is male. It is unclear if he has any connection to the Kaiser facility (i.e. if he is an employee or patient). The coroner has arrived on the scene.
