CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Chula Vista police went to a homeless camp in search of answers in the beating death of a 52-year-old man who lived there, it was reported Saturday.

Police were notified of a body north of the Sweetwater River Channel, between state Route 54 and 30th Street, about 11 a.m. Friday and found a man who died of blows to the head, Chula Vista police Lt. Don Redmond told a local news source.
