June 20, 2001

SALTON SEA BEACH — A 62-year-old man was found dead in his travel trailer here Tuesday and the death is being investigated by the county Coroner's Office.

The body of Gary Lee Altizer, 62, known as a handyman, was found by a friend.

The cause of death was unknown this morning, said coroner Investigator Gary Hayes, who added Altizer had likely been dead for two days before his body was found.

He said it is too soon to speculate on the cause of death but he said there were no signs of foul play.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Saturday.

Hayes said Altizer lived alone in the travel trailer.
