Police received a call about the body at about 8:30 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im. He said California Highway Patrol officials told LAPD that they found a body with possible stab wounds.

However, authorities did not call the coroner due to a need to further investigate, Im said.
