CBS2 News is reporting a recently shot body of a Hispanic male was found in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale around 1:30 p,m. today.

It was unclear if he was murdered in the cemetery or if his body was dumped there after he was shot, she said. The exact cause of the victim's death was not immediately available. Los Angeles police and fire units were sent to the Glendale branch of Forest Lawn, where the entrance is on Glendale Avenue in Glendale, but most of the facility inside L.A. city limits. Paramedics sent to the scene were apparently delayed by confusion over the exact location of the apparent crime. [CBS2]

If the murder happened in Los Angeles, that just might be the first murder of many of the year for the city.
