A spokesperson from the LA Coroner’s Office says that the actions of Jentzsch’s parents-in-law have raised some questions about his death.
Jentzsch’s body was discovered July 2 at his in-laws’ home in Sylmar, Calif. ABC 7 has a timeline of events around Jentzsch’s death:
- July 2, 9 a.m.: Jentzsch’s in-laws see him asleep
- July 2, 9 p.m.: Jentzsch hasn’t moved, but no one checks on him
- July 3, morning: Jentzsch’s father-in-law checks on him and finds him unresponsive. He takes a child to school, returns home, and then calls 911.
RadarOnline first reported that investigators were looking into Jentzsch’s death. Ed Winter, spokesperson at the LA County Coroner’s Office, had this to say to RadarOnline:
The LAPD is involved in the investigation into Alexander Jentzsch. Let’s just say we have questions about his death. We also have been told that Alexander’s father-in-law found his body, and ran an errand, and then came home and called 911.
The coroner’s office has completed an autopsy but are still awaiting toxicology results.
However, LAPD spokesperson Karen Rayner told The Huffington Post that detectives are still awaiting the coroner’s final reports and haven’t released any information about the case. “I do not know what source RadarOnline has for that information,” said Rayner in an email.
