On December 27, 2018, at 1:14 p.m. the Glendale Police Department received a call from a male that said that an individual he was with had passed out and was possibly not breathing.  The caller indicated he was at the Days Inn in Glendale.

The Glendale Fire Department responded to the scene and found a man down inside a room suffering from a medical emergency.  The man was not breathing and CPR was administered as paramedics prepared to transport him to the hospital.  The man was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The deceased has been identified as Chris Burrous, a 43-year old man from Porter Ranch. 

The original call to the Glendale Police Department indicated the deceased had possibly overdosed.  Glendale detectives are currently investigating the case and are thoroughly examining the unfortunate circumstances surrounding his death. Detectives will be awaiting the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office report for a determination of the cause of death and to assist in bringing the investigation to a conclusion.
