Man’s body found near construction trailers at SoFi Stadium
A man was found dead near the construction trailer complex at the SoFi Stadium development in Inglewood early Friday.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner said a Latino male in his 20s was pronounced dead at 2:34 a.m. The man’s name hasn’t been released publicly because the next of kin has yet to be notified. An autopsy is pending.
A spokeswoman for the development said Inglewood police are investigating the death.
A construction worker at the stadium died in June after falling more than 110 feet from the building’s roof. His family sued the project’s developers in L.A. County Superior Court.
A second construction worker died at the project in July. Turner-AECOM Hunt, the joint venture overseeing construction, said at the time he had exhibited “signs of a health issue.” The medical examiner-coroner hasn’t released a cause of death or autopsy report pending further investigation.
The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the June and July deaths, but a spokesman said the agency isn’t involved in the probe of Friday’s death.
Inglewood police asked anyone with information on the death to contact homicide detectives at 310-412-5246.
The Rams opened SoFi Stadium with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 13. The Chargers, who share the stadium that is the centerpiece of a 298-acre development, host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
