Man found dead in Los Angeles airport bathroom

[Updated, 7:42 p.m.] The Los Angeles County coroner's office is investigating the man's death "as a possible suicide," according to Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Mary Grady.

[Original post] A dead man was found in one of the restrooms at the Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday morning, a spokesman for the airport said in statement.

Police were notified after a custodian alerted authorities that he found a body in one of the bathrooms in terminal 3 of the airport at 7:45 a.m. PT

"Airport Police in the terminal responded immediately and notified LAPD, which has jurisdiction in this incident," Airport spokesman Albert Rodriguez said in a statement. "Airport Operations as well as TSA screening operations have been unaffected by this incident. No other information is currently available."

CNN affiliate KTLA reported the man was found with hands bound and a bag over his head.

    Pray for this man's family and friends....he is dead. Give THAT a little respect. I have been through LAX airport and it is a zoo......Just like JFK and Healthrow. A lot of stuff go on at airports and we should all be careful when we go there so we will not be the next CNN story. As I said, my heart goes out to this poor man's family.

    And NO ONE had to use this restroom in the time it took this poor fellow to suffocate?? The killer probably put a nice little 'out of order' sign on the door...

    WOW! Doesnt anyone have any respect anymore? A man is found dead and all people can do is make jokes? Unbelieveable. Lord have mercy on them for they know not what they did. How sad someone has lost a father a son a uncle a grandpa a brother a nephew or a friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to this mans family and friends. I pray that they find the person(s) who is responsible for this death.
