Foul Smell Leads to Suspicious Death Investigation in Barrio Logan

A man found dead inside a car parked in a Barrio Logan neighborhood, causing an odor that alerted neighbors to what police are calling a suspicious death, has been identified.

Witnesses said they noticed the foul smell and found a small pool of blood near a car in the 2900 block of Boston Avenue at about 2 p.m. on Thursday so they called the San Diego Police Department, Lt. Matt Dobbs said.

A few hours later, about 10 San Diego Police Department (SDPD) detectives were briefing behind yellow tape.

Officers could not immediately explain how the man — identified as 61-year-old Reuben Enrique Aranda of National City — died so homicide detectives were called, Dobbs said.
