Authorities investigating apparent suicide on Angeles Crest

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigators are responded to an apparent suicide Monday on Angeles Crest Highway above La Cañada Flintridge.

An unidentified man was found seated in a vehicle with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, said Capt. John Kades of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner. The body was found near mile marker 26, above the Angeles National Forest snow gate.

Kades characterized his information as a “preliminary report” from the sheriff’s office. Sheriff’s investigators have not released information about the incident.
