Authorities Tuesday identified a man who was found mortally injured in a remote area of Castaic.

Deputies were sent about 1 p.m. Monday to investigate a report of a person down and in need of medical help on an access road a half-mile north of the 35500 block of Ridge Route Road, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

“When deputies arrived at the location, they found the victim may have sustained various injuries that included being stabbed,” Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said.

Tron Mayo, 31, of Inglewood was pronounced dead at the scene, the coroner’s office reported. An autopsy was pending to pinpoint the cause of death.

Anyone with information was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
