Suspect Information: N/A
Details of News Release: San Luis Obispo County Sheriff-Coroner investigators were called to a Los Osos residence Wednesday morning after paramedics arrived at a medical aid call and found the victim unresponsive with a chest wound. It was later that the chest wound was determined to be from a previous surgical procedure. In addition, the body had been moved from it's original location, leading to speculation that some foul play may have occurred. Sheriff's homicide investigators reviewed the scene, interviewed family members and the body will be autopsied today. It appears at this point that there is no reason to believe the death was other than natural, however detectives are awaiting this afternoon's preliminary autopsy results to confirm the cause and manner of death.
