Decomposed Body Found in Twentynine Palms Leads to Death Investigation

TWENTYNINE PALMS – The decomposed body of a male adult led to a death investigation in close proximity to a homeless encampment in Twentynine Palms.

On Monday, August 6, 2018, authorities received a report of possible human skeletal remains being located in the desert in the 73100 block of Cactus Drive. Deputies arrived shortly after the call and determined that the remains were, in fact, human. The Specialized Investigations Division and Coroner Division responded to assume the investigation.

“Due to the extent of decomposition an autopsy will be conducted to determine the identification of the victim,” San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said. “Investigators did not locate any obvious signs of foul play or suspicious circumstances.”

The remains are in the process of being identified so that family can be made aware of the death. Anyone with information related to this investigation is urged to contact the Specialized Investigations Division – Homicide Detail, Detective James Williams at (909)387-3589.
