The Moreno Valley Station of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the discovery of human remains found inside a burned vehicle earlier this week.
Deputies responded to the area of Reche Canyon Road and High County Drive at 4:35 p.m. Tuesday, where authorities found partially burned remains inside a scorched vehicle.
“The decedent has not yet been identified,” Deputy Robyn Flores said Thursday.
No additional information, including the circumstances around the discovery of the body, has been made available.
Photographs from Loudlabs News show a charred SUV in the middle of a boulder-strewn ravine as investigators patrol the taped-off perimeter.
