Alfonso Gonzalez, a 36-year-old Latino, was found dead Wednesday, Dec. 2, in the 1700 block of Autumnmist Drive in Palmdale, authorities said.

According to coroner’s records, Gonzalez’s burned body was found with arms and legs bound in a closet at a residence. He was discovered by authorities after the residence was set on fire.

Though the coroner’s initial report on the killing indicates Gonzalez may have been beaten before he was burned, detectives said they are still investigating what happened to him.
