Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man who was found Sunday in his Palmdale home with blunt-force trauma to his upper torso.
The man's body was found Sunday by authorities who were called to check on the welfare of a resident living in the 37800 block of 20th Street East, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies who arrived saw a broken window, and after not getting a response at the door, "they forced entry into the location and observed the victim suffered from blunt-force trauma to his upper torso," the Sheriff's Department said.
The man, who has not been identified according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives did not find any witnesses, authorities said, and no other information was immediately available.
