Body found in Downtown Fresno indentified
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Investigators are saying very little about a suspicious death in Downtown Fresno. The body of the man was found in China Alley near Kern and "F" Street just before 7:00 Friday morning.
Police dogs were brought out to sniff for evidence. Friends have identified the victim as 74-year-old Luis Ruiz. For now, investigators are not saying why they consider it to be a suspicious death other than the location of the body.
Fresno Police, Lt. Burke Farrah said, "It's just not a normal place for folks to die. People typically die in hospitals and other places like that, not in an ally."
Detectives say police video on nearby streets and witness statements could provide more answers in this case.
