The Mounting Toll of Those Dying on the Streets

Those living on the streets often have addiction and/or mental illness that needs to be treated.

(Editor’s note: the people and the names of those people who are dying on the streets should be remembered. The County of Los Angeles Medical Examiner lists the case numbers, the names, the individual’s date of birth and the place of death.  It does not give the cause of death. https://mec.lacounty.gov/case-search/

CTN lists below the deceased who were found in public places. There was no way to determine if those found in residences, as opposed to private residences, may have also overdosed. As Palisades resident and Santa Monica businessman John Alle told CTN, “We need to humanize every death. Every person has a soul.” )
