Bell Gardens John Doe was a man found murdered in a parking lot in 2006. He was identified in 2011.
At 7:16 p.m. on July 6, 2006, a middle-aged Hispanic male was walking in the parking lot of a strip mall on 5985 Florence Avenue in Bell Gardens, California. Another person, a Hispanic male, confronted the man and suddenly kicked the man in the head, knocking him to the pavement. The man suffered massive head trauma and died of his injuries in the hospital. The suspect fled the scene, and an arrest warrant for involuntary manslaughter was issued soon after. The suspect would be arrested, but the crime appeared to be random. The victim frequented the area he was found in and often loitered in the alley on Jaboriea Road, near Florence Avenue.
After submitting a tip regarding the victim, Daniel Machian of the Los Angeles County Coroner stated that the victim had been identified, he did not release his name.
