A dead body was discovered just off the 101 Freeway near Echo Park Friday night, police said.
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.
No other details, such as the gender or age of the person, have been released by law enforcement.
