A Del Rey man headed to work early Tuesday morning discovered a dead body in the carport outside of his apartment in the 4000 block of Corinth Avenue (near Tenino Avenue) in Del Rey, according to police.

The body, found just before 6:30 a.m., is that of an unidentified white male who appeared to be between 40 and 45 years old, LAPD Sgt. Stephen Mclean said.

Investigators are still trying to determine how the man died.

“We are treating this as a death under suspicious circumstances,” Mclean said.
