Decomposed Body Found at Whittier Narrows

By City News Service

Los Angeles County Flood Control workers conducting a survey on a water causeway 200 yards north of the Whittier Narrows Dam found decomposed remains there Tuesday.

The discovery of the remains, estimated to have been in the location for several months, was made at 8:39 a.m. on the west bank of the San Gabriel River, about 100 yards west of Bicentennial Park, said Sgt. Rich Pena of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

The remains were removed and the coroner’s office and sheriff’s detectives will work to determine the cause and time of death, as well as identifying the remains.

Anyone with information related to the remains was asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
