Authorities Trying To Determine Cause Of Mysterious Death In Ventura County

Posted on Friday, August 15, 2014 12:10am

The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office is trying to determine the cause of death of a man whose body was found slumped against a building off the 101 Freeway between Oxnard, and Camarillo.

A Ventura County Sheriff’s deputy on patrol spotted the man just before 10 a.m. yesterday on the 1300 block of Del Norte Road.  The man was propped up against the wall of a strip mall, and appeared to be injured.  It turned out the man was dead.

The death at this point is being called suspicious, but investigators are stopping short of saying it was a homicide.  An autopsy is pending.

The man, who was an adult white male, hasn’t been identified yet.
