An actor has been found murdered at the rented home of Canadian talk-show host George Stroumboulopoulos in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, police and the TV personality said on Friday.

The body of Richard Hong, 41, was found at the house by officers responding to reports of a burglary there shortly after 2 a.m. PT (0900 GMT), said Officer Norma Eisenman, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.

"Officers were directed to a male, the apparent victim of a homicide," Eisenman said, adding that witnesses reported seeing a man in a black jacket fleeing the area on foot.

That suspect remained at large on Friday evening despite a search of the neighborhood using dogs and a helicopter.

The Los Angeles Times
, citing a coroner's spokesman, said that the victim had sustained head trauma. Reuters could not immediately confirm that report with the coroner's office.
