Dead body found inside Venice residence, police say

The body of a man in his 20s was discovered inside a seaside Venice residence late Saturday night, authorities said.

Los Angeles police and fire personnel responded to the 100 block of Catamaran Street just before 9 p.m., Sgt. P. Aeschliman said. Investigators believe the man may have died as the result of a drug overdose, he said.

It was unclear if the death was a suicide, and the Los Angeles County coroner was en route to the scene.

Aeschliman said police did not suspect foul play in the death.

No additional details were immediately available.
