The decedent’s surname is Middle Eastern / Persian / Iranian. It’s possible that the reason the coroner-investigator listed him as Armenian is because he was an ethnic Armenian from Iran but that usually is reflected in the person’s name. Perhaps he was a resident of Glendale and was simply assumed to be Armenian.
