Homeless man found dead next to 7-Eleven in lincoln heights


Lincoln Heights  — A passerby found a dead homeless man this morning in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven near a trash can, said LAPD Sgt. Ernesto De Alba.

The man, who apparently died of natural causes, had been hanging around the convenience store on Eastlake Avenue and N. Broadway, De Alba said. He went in earlier and asked for a beer, but didn’t have enough money to pay for it.

Los Angeles County Coroner officials have not identified the man, who was discovered at about 5 a.m.,  or cause of death. But said he’s believed to be in his 40s.

    Would we feel less uncompassionate if the headlines read, “Someone’s friend died alone of natural causes in Lincoln Heights today?
    If we were to care a little more, maybe, just maybe those who live on the road might come back into society and the issues of homelessness would be addressed from the inside out; rather than the outside in.
    Just saying hello has more value than the change one pulls from their pocket.
    Say hello and change a life today. Just say hello.

I’m from the San Diego area, there’s a lot of homeless where I work .I do not treat the homeless less than I do regular customers I treat everybody equal and I even try to help the homeless when I can. We all need to lift eachother up.It could be us in their shoes.May the deceased”Rest in Paradise”
