Upon investigation police stated the victim, 52 year old Carl Veilleux, had apparently died from an upper level balcony at the complex. The body was sent for an autopsy to confirm cause of death.
Authorities say there were no witnesses and the body has injuries to the face, abdomen, and ribs consistent with a fall.
The Torre Malibu serves primarily gay men and is located behind the Blue Chairs and gay beach of Playa Los Muertos. The condominium complex is nine stories high.
