The death of an unidentified man who was found earlier this week under a bridge in Indio was being investigated as a homicide, police said Wednesday.
Police responded at around 2:10 a.m. Monday to a report of an injured person under the Indio Boulevard Bridge in the 81-200 block of Indio Boulevard near Clinton Street, according to spokesman Ben Guitron of the Indio Police Department.
Guitron said that when officers arrived, they found a man dead with an unspecified wound on his body. Detectives from the IPD assumed the investigation with the Riverside County Sheriff Department’s Coroner’s Bureau, Guitron said, and after an initial examination from the coroner’s bureau, the incident was being investigated as a homicide.
Guitron said the last known location of the man was somewhere in San Diego County.
