Foul Play Suspected in Death of Man Found in Bushes in San Jose

A homicide investigation has begun following the discovery of a man's body Tuesday evening in some bushes in downtown San Jose, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials were called at 7:12 p.m. to the shoulder of the South First Street on-ramp to southbound Interstate Highway 280.

That's where they found the body of a middle-aged, Hispanic man who had apparently been experiencing homelessness.

The name of the man was not available Wednesday from the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

CHP officials are asking for help with the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to the highway patrol's tipline at (707) 917-4491.
