Two homeless men apparently got into a fight this afternoon in a flood control channel in Anaheim – and one of them was beat to death, according to the O.C. Register.
Several students of Brookhurst Junior High School told a teacher that they had seen the two men fighting. The police got the call at around 3:40 p.m.
When the police arrived they found the homeless dead man in the channel with what looked like blunt-force trauma to the head.
The other man, who is also homeless, was detained near the channel by the police and he was being questioned tonight.
The police have established that the suspect and the victim knew each other but so far the motive for the beating remains a mystery. The police also have not revealed the identity of the two homeless men.
This is the fight murder in Anaheim so far in 2017.
