Airport killings are a rare occurrence
Although a man was found dead in a LAX restroom, police want to remind the public that there does not appear to be a cause to worry, in general. Â In fact, authorities report that they cannot think of any cases in recent history that involved a murder/homicide that took place in the confines of a LAX airport terminal.
Airport authorities report that LAX is a safer operation, as measures have been put in place, post 9/11, to ensure that the 29 million travelers that travel annually, can do so in a safeÂ environment. Â They report that although a man was found dead in a terminal's restroom, only one aggravated assault has been reported for the entire year.
The investigation involving the dead man found in a Terminal 3 restroom at LAX is ongoing.
