A man was reportedly found beaten to death at a Los Angeles residence rented by TV and radio personality George Stroumboulopoulos.
The man’s body was discovered Friday morning when the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) responded to the home after a report of a robbery.
“Around 2:17 this morning the Hollywood-area officers responded to a burglary call in the 6700 block of Milner Road, officers were directed to a male who was the apparent victim of a homicide,” LAPD Officer Aeron Jefferson told Global News.
“The witness reported seeing a male fleeing from the area.”
Police have confirmed the deceased is 41 year old LA actor Richard Hong.
Investigators said Hong died of blunt force trauma.
In social media posts following the incident, Stroumboulopoulos says the victim as a friend of his.
