Police Suspect Foul Play in Man's Death

May 26, 2000|GREG RISLING

Police said Thursday they suspect foul play in the death of a 32-year-old Los Angeles man who was found sprawled across a dirt road in Sunland.

Authorities said Mark Anthony Escalante was found dead early Wednesday in the 8300 block of McGroarty Street by someone walking a dog.

Escalante had visible head trauma, an indication he may have been slain, said Det. Charles Lenane of the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division.

"We are considering this very suspicious," he said. "It looks like someone dumped his body out there."

An autopsy is pending to determine the cause of death.
