Man Found Dead In Former CNN Host's Hollywood Hills Home
A man was found dead early Friday morning at the Hollywood Hills home of George Stroumboulopoulos, a Canadian TV personality who'd briefly hosted a talk show on CNN, according to Variety.
LAPD officer Drake Madison told Variety that police were responding to a burglary call in the 6700 block of Milner Road at 2:17 a.m. when they discovered the man, "who was apparently [a] victim of a homicide". LAPD said that the man had died of blunt force trauma, according to ABC 7.
Madison added that witnesses saw another man—described as black, thin, 5-foot-8, with a short hair cut—running away from the scene as he fled west on Milner Road. LAPD officer Aaron Jefferson told LAist that the man is considered to be a suspect.
While the LAPD has yet to confirm who is the legal owner of the house, Stroumboulopoulos took to Twitter to state that he was renting the space, and that the man found dead was a friend of his:
