According to police spokeswoman Traci Trapani, officers responded to a 5:28 p.m. Friday call in the 6900 block of 27th Avenue. A resident found the man unresponsive in a trailer parked on the property. The Sacramento Fire Department arrived, determined the man was dead and called for the coroner. The coroner found signs of trauma to the side of the man’s head, Trapani said.
