A man was found beaten to death at a Los Angeles residence rented by TV and radio personality George Stroumboulopoulos.
The man’s body was discovered Friday morning when the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) responded to the home after a report of a robbery.
“Around 2:17 this morning the Hollywood-area officers responded to a burglary call in the 6700 block of Milner Road, officers were directed to a male who was the apparent victim of a homicide,” LAPD Officer Aeron Jefferson told Global News.
“The witness reported seeing a male fleeing from the area.”
Police would not confirm the cause of death or the deceased’s identity.
In a message on twitter, Stroumboulopoulos says he was in New York City at the time, and describes the deceased as a dear friend who was staying at his place while he was away.
