Garvey School Closes After Body Is Found

April 01, 1993

Garvey Intermediate School was closed for the day Tuesday after the body of a 32-year-old man was found in the schoolyard before classes began.

The body of Lauro Vasquez of Rosemead was found by a groundskeeper at 6:45 a.m., sheriff's investigators said. He appeared to have been stabbed to death, but an autopsy was scheduled.

Investigators said that Vasquez was not a known gang member but that the possibility his death was gang-related has not been discounted. The Rosemead-San Gabriel area has had a rash of gang-related violence recently.

Although the body was found in an area of the campus hidden from public view, students were sent home while the investigation continued.
