The Westminster Police Department is reaching out to the public in hopes of identifying a man who jumped to his death from the Magnolia Street overcrossing and onto the northbound 405 freeway last night.

The suicide was reported at 7:36 p.m. Sunday, according to Westminster Police Sgt. Michael S. Chapman.

Described as Asian, age 25-30 and having short black hair, the man had no identification on him, Chapman reportedly told City News Service.

"The victim was found in the roadway by a passing motorist," added Chapman, who noted the leap briefly closed the San Diego Freeway as the California Highway Patrol assisted in the investigation.

Anyone with information on the man's identity is urged to call the Westminster Police watch commander at 714.898.3315.

I take such offense to that comment given that lost one of the most near and dear individuals in my life to suicide. He was mentally ill, struggling, felt tortured. I truly pity you for your blatant ignorance.

Those are some pretty strong words on your behalf Jennifer. Obviously you are not well versed on the issues of mental illness that plague this country. The majority of individuals who commit suicide are mentally ill and not in their "right mind." These people genuinely believe the world would be better off without them. In all actuality the world would be better off without small minded sheep like yourself.

Why should they? The dude didn't have "integrity" when he killed himself. Didn't have integrity when he took it upon himself to possibly harm motorists below. Didn't have integrity when he did it somewhere right in public so poor innocent people had to watch or see and find him. Anyone that commits suicide is a selfish piece of shit and doesn't deserve any respect what so ever

If there aren't witnesses yet, how do you know he wasn't pushed? "He was found in the road..."

Ummm nice and vague on the description. Asian, mid to late twenties, short black hair? That's half the city! And that picture doesn't help. Lol. Who had the time to whip out the camera for that fall shot, btw. And for those of you trashing oc weekly for being insensitive... The dude won't mind, he's dead, and clearly had no regard for his life and reputation anyway. Or he wouldn't kill himself.

So annoying that people put others in danger when committing suicide. How about kill yourself in a private place instead of possibly causing an accident and hurting others.

Ah here we are again. Mid 20's, asian and short black hair..You just described Westminster.

Pity he didn't jump from the Coronado bridge, then he would have been ID'd. But then again, when jumpers choose such a high profile place, they don't really want to off themselves as much as they want to be attn whoring.

I don't think he was Asian; that's just what happens to your eyes when you fell from such great heights.
