    The man who was found dead beneath a downtown parking structure Monday afternoon has been identified as 42-year-old Kyle Pearson, who was facing manslaughter charge.

    Pearson was supposed to appear in court yesterday afternoon, according to Imperial County Deputy District Attorney Jeffrey Brooker.

    Pearson was going to set a trial date for his alleged involvement in a car accident that left a CALTRANS worker dead in El Centro last June. Pearson was allegedly using marijuana when he fatally struck Jamie Obeso, according to Brooker.

    Pearson’s lawyer told Brooker that a family member had informed him of the death.

    The medical examiner’s office has yet to release the cause of Pearson’s death.
