Police still haven't figured out the identity of a man found dead inside a fountain at a Studio City shopping center just before stores opened on Black Friday.Police have a hunch who it might be a 49-year-old man, but they haven't been able to confirm his identity, according to Studio City Patch. Although no foul play is suspected, police have also not determined how the man died. One anonymous investigator told Patch that the man may have been a homeless man who died while fishing for coins in the fountain.

The shopping center is located at 12200 block of Ventura Boulevard.
