RIP ARIK JOHN PARKER (August 17, 1981 – March 23, 2023)
Formal pronouncement of death was made on Thursday at 9:10 p.m.
The decedent had multiple old and recent arrests. He had just been released on March 20, 2023.
He was struck and killed in South Los Angeles by a pickup truck whose driver fled the scene.
Paramedics sent to Century Boulevard and Hoover Street about 8:55 p.m. pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
Parker was on the roadway when he was hit by a dark-colored pickup truck that was eastbound on Century Boulevard.
No suspect information has been provided.
The fact that the coroner’s office could not decide on a specific manner of death implies that it could have been an accident, suicide or homicide.
At some point, the government clerk changed the decedent’s race/ethnicity from Hispanic to White.
