Apparent Homicide Victim Found in Parked Car in Southcrest

by Contributing Editor

An apparent homicide victim was found Wednesday in a bloodied car on a Southcrest-area roadside.

Patrol officers responding to a report of a possible traffic accident in the 4000 block of Boston Avenue shortly before noon found the mortally wounded victim behind the wheel of the parked vehicle, bleeding from the head, according to San Diego police.

The unidentified victim died at the scene, Lt. Matt Dobbs said.

Police initially reported that the man apparently had been shot to death but later sought backed off from those statements.

“The mechanism for the man’s injury is not being released at this time. … It is very early in the investigation, and little is known about the events leading to (his) death,” Dobbs said in the late afternoon.

Witnesses told investigators three male youths had been with the victim shortly prior to his death.

“The group of teenagers walked away towards a nearby park just before the victim was discovered with the injury,” the lieutenant said.
