Medics responded to a call concerning a 52-year-old man who suffered from an unexplained head injury at a motel on the 6700 block of La Jolla Boulevard on Sept. 25.
The victim’s roommates discovered their friend just after midnight, and they called the fire department for medical assistance. After the man was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, hospital staff notified police to report the man’s head injury as suspicious.
During the police investigation, detectives learned that the man’s condition had worsened. At press time, the man was on life support and was not expected to recover.
Homicide detectives collected evidence from the motel room and are seeking out witnesses who may have information on the victim. The name of the victim will not be released until his family is notified of his condition.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
Foundation for Women reaches out to San Diego entrepreneurs
The Foundation for Women is hoping to make its services available to more women entrepreneurs with its 14th annual luncheon on Friday, Sept. 28 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel.
The luncheon will focus awareness on the critical issues facing women living in poverty and raise funds for the organization’s efforts. The keynote speaker at the luncheon will be world-renowned photographer and filmmaker Phil Borges.
There are more than 17 million women living in poverty today, a record number according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau report (2011). The “extreme poverty” rate — individuals whose income is below half of the federal poverty line — among women in the U.S. was the highest ever recorded.
Borges’ photographs are collected and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. His award-winning books have been published in four languages and in 1998 he was presented the Photo Media Magazine "Photoperson of the Year" award. In December 2003, Borges was honored with the Humanitarian Award, receiving the Lucie at the 1st Annual International Photography Awards.
