A body was discovered inside a vehicle parked in the middle of the street along the 300 block of Westlake Avenue, Tuesday morning. LAPD was alerted to the discovery around 2:10 a.m.

According to KCBS, the body of a male Hispanic in his 30s was found in the back seat of a black Hyundai. The car had an Uber sticker, and is believed to have been towed to the location it was discovered at.

A spokeswoman for the LAPD told LAist that the department "cannot confirm these claims," and that "detectives and the coroner are continuing their investigation of the case."
