Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was found just after 2 a.m. Friday on the westbound shoulder of the Foothill (210) Freeway.
Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department officials identified the man as Kirk Allen Spiegel, 49. The 2011 Crescenta-Cañada Directory lists Spiegel as a resident of North Glendale.
Spiegel was a Los Angeles Unified School District elementary school teacher who had been on medical leave since last year, said LAUSD spokeswoman Monica Carazo. She was not able to specify Spiegel’s condition or the school where he worked.
