No clear motive in slaying of East Hollywood man, police say

Police were asking for the public’s help Monday in finding the person who killed a 62-year-old man found dead in his apartment.

An autopsy performed last week showed that Cornelius Rich, also known as Andre Dupree, died from blunt force trauma in his East Hollywood apartment.


Police were called last Tuesday to check on Rich in the 500 block of Kingsley Drive and discovered his body.

There was no clear motive for the slaying, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Los Angeles Police Department West Bureau homicide detectives at (213) 382-9470.
