The Orange County Sheriff's Department today said family members have identified a 19-year-old man discovered unresponsive on a sidewalk in Orange who later died at an area hospital.
Officials would not disclose the last name of Danny, who was a resident of Rialto, because the ``coroner's investigation is still ongoing,'' Lt. Ryan Anderson said.
``Earlier this morning, family members identified the decedent as Danny, 19, from Rialto. We would like to offer our deepest condolences to Danny's family and friends during this difficult time. Thank you to everyone who shared this information,'' the OCSD tweeted Saturday.
The Rialto resident was seen Nov. 27 on security footage at the Metrolink Station on Chapman Avenue, where he paid cash for a train ticket to San Bernardino but missed the train, the department said. He was found unresponsive later that day on the sidewalk near Chapman Avenue and Main Street. Paramedics rushed him to Providence St. Joseph Hospital Orange, where he died on Dec. 1.
The Orange County coroner's office urged anyone with information regarding Danny's whereabouts prior to Nov. 27 to call them at 714-647-7400 or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-847-6227.
