Dykstra says the dead man is of Asian descent, but they haven’t yet identified him.
He says the man appears to be in his 20’s or 30’s. Dykstra says they do have one lead. Dykstra says investigators are speaking with an individual who may be involved. Dykstra says they’re not yet identifying the person who is being questioned.
