More details for body found on Mt. Baldy Road
The body of a female found on a west side turnout of Mt. Baldy Road, just north of the tunnels on Tuesday, March 3 has been identified as a 38-year-old Los Angeles resident of Hispanic descent. No further details are being released at this time.
“We are attempting to locate next of kin,” explained Sgt. Luis Nunez, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau. “We will provide more details as they become available and when her family has been notified.”
According to law enforcement, evidence on the victim aided in her identification.
The body of the Los Angeles woman was found at approximately 9:55 a.m. on Tuesday, clothed and covered in blankets approximately 25 to 30 feet from the road. A US Forest Service employee driving along Mt. Baldy Road first located the woman and contacted Los Angeles County Sheriff’s San Dimas station.
According to investigators, the cause of death is unknown but remains suspicious.
“We do suspect foul play,” said Lt. Eddie Hernandez. “She was found in a remote area and she wasn’t there for a long time. Anything could have happened.”
The investigation is ongoing.
