[ARCHIVED] Suspicious Death

PASO ROBLES, CA – On Friday, May 17, 2019 at approximately 8:40 AM, EMS personnel and officers from the Paso Robles Police Department received a report of a man lying on the railroad tracks near Pine and 6th St.

EMS personnel arrived on scene and located an elderly white male adult (70) lying across the railroad tracks next to his bicycle. The subject had a small amount of blood above his left eye and on his cheek. It appeared as if the subject had fallen off his bicycle and struck his head. EMS personnel attended to the subject to no avail, and he was pronounced deceased. Detectives from the Paso Robles PD as well as the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office responded and took over the investigation.

The Union Pacific Railroad was contacted and stopped all incoming trains while the investigation was conducted. The subject was not struck by a train and there was no obvious evidence that a crime had occurred. However, this investigation is ongoing and being treated as a suspicious death until further information is obtained from the autopsy. The deceased’s name will be released upon notification of his next of kin.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Paso Robles Police Department at 805-237-6464. Persons wishing to remain anonymous are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers' 24-hour hotline at 549-STOP or by texting “SLOTIPS” plus your message” to CRIMES (274637).
