Clark County Coroner ID’s man discovered close to East Las Vegas residence

A man found near an apartment complex in east Las Vegas last week has been identified by the Clark County Coroner Office.

Jerry Torres, 30, of Las Vegas was pronounced dead on December 28 at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center after he was found around 7 a.m. on the 5700 block of Missouri Avenue, according to the coroner.

Officers who reacted after a report of gunfire found Torres unresponsive, the review journal previously reported.

Homicide detectors were initially called in, but Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Misael Parra said police were waiting for the toxicology report before determining whether the man’s death was murder.

The coroner had not decided the cause and type of death by Tuesday.
