TEHACHAPI, Calif. - Around 6:45 on Sunday, August 17, deputies from the Tehachapi Substation responded to a report of a man down at an industrial complex located in the 1500 block of Goodrick Drive.
When deputies arrived they found an unconscious adult male inside one of the industrial buildings occupied by BNSF Railway Company.
The victim has been identified as 38-year-old Robert Limon.
