Traffic Snarled on 10 Freeway in Santa Monica

Traffic snarled in Santa Monica on the westbound 10 Freeway at Lincoln Boulevard due to police activity Thursday morning.

The dead body of a male in his 60s was found near a homeless encampment, Sgt. Rudy Camarena said, a Santa Monica Police Department spokesman.

A prlimarinary investigation showed no signs of foul play, he added.

Officials closed the left lane of the westbound off ramp and a Sigalert was issued shortly before 11 a.m. The lane was reopened several hours later.

Aerial footage showed crime tape strung across the grassy divider between the Lincoln Boulevard exit and highway. Several SMPD officers were on scene investigating the area.
