The District Attorney’s office temporarily declined to file charges against Michael Osuno on suspicion of murder on Monday. Osuno was released from custody. The Coroner has finished the autopsy but was not able to definitively identify the cause or manner of death. The Coroner’s investigation is ongoing.
The Alhambra Police Department will continue to investigate this case as a homicide.
A man was found dead on Thursday morning at an apartment complex located at 821 West Marino Avenue. Authorities have identified the victim as 35-year-old Francisco Marin, reports
CBS Los Angeles. He is believed to have been homeless at the time of his death.
The Alhambra Police Department responded to a disturbance call at 2:47am on Thursday. The call said that a fight was possibly occurring. Authorities found Marin’s body upon arriving. “Initial examination of the victim showed no injury that would have explained his death,” the ADP announced in a press release. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will investigate the cause of death.
Michael Osuna, a 26-year-old resident of the apartment complex, was arrested for one count of Penal Code Section 187, or murder. His bail was set at $1 million.
The Alhambra Police Department urges anyone with information to call (626) 570-5156.
