Westmont, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Los Angeles County Sheriff's homicide detectives today were investigating the death of a man who apparently was strangled in unincorporated Westmont abutting South Los Angeles inside his home, which appeared to have been ransacked, authorities said.

The death may have occurred around 10:40 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of West 98th Street, said Homicide Lt. John Corina. "Deputies from the South Los Angeles Station responded to a 911 call of a person dead at the residential location,'' Corina said.

"Upon their arrival, deputies saw that the house appeared to have been ransacked and the victim, a 67-year-old male, was lying on the floor inside the residence. It appeared that the victim may have been in a fight or struggled with the suspect and the victim may have been strangled,'' Corina said.

Anyone with information about the man's death is encouraged to contact homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500 or leave an anonymous tip at Crime Stoppers, (800) 222-TIPS (8477) or http://lacrimestoppers.org.
