A man was found deceased Wednesday morning in a public bathroom in downtown Los Gatos, police have confirmed.
At about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police were notified that there was a person believed to be a homeless individual possibly dead in the bathroom to the rear of 9 No. Santa Cruz Ave., said Sgt. spokesman Kerry Harris.
Officers arrived and found the man deceased in the restroom as reported, Harris added.
There was no sign of trauma, nor evidence of foul play, he said. "The scene did not bear evidence that would suggest that criminal activity took place. So normally, unless the coroner's process reveals something to indicate foul play, the case would be closed," Harris said.
The Santa Clara County Coroner's Office was notified and responded to the scene.
A medical examiner identified the man as Christopher Blatnick, 50, a transient out of Los Gatos. His family has been notified, the examiner said, adding that cause of death is still pending.
