A man found dead in a vehicle parked at a turnout on Angeles Crest Highway this week was a 43-year-old from Pasadena, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Dept. of Coroner said Tuesday.
There has not yet been an official ruling as to the cause of death, according to coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey.
The man was found at 2:57 p.m. Monday seated in a vehicle parked in a turnout at mile marker 27.2 on the highway. Capt. John Kades of the coroner’s office said Monday that it appeared the man had suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
The matter is under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which has not released any information.
