Firefighters and Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a hair salon on Koontz near South Carson Street Sunday morning on a report that there was a dead body on the floor inside the salon.
At first it was thought that a contractor worker associated with fixing the salon’s roof accidentally fell through a hole, or a weakened area of the roof, and died on the floor below. But deputies quickly concluded that the fall victim was probably not a roofer but rather possibly a burglar who saw an opportunity to enter a closed business.
There was a large roofing contractor’s truck parked up against the salon’s east wall which would have enabled easy access to the roof. No name yet released on the name of of the deceased male.
