Either a bored gang banger did this crime or a fellow homeless person who had a feud with the deceased victim, killed him.
The suspect snuck up on him and stabbed him while he was sleep, that's some coward crap right there.
Reseda Park is surrounded by two well known gangs, and plus homeless people LOVE to sleep at parks in LA especially when no cops are monitoring the park.
Reseda got its good parts and its bad parts. Me personally I wouldn't be at Reseda Park at night.
