The coroner’s office has determined the remains found at a property near Littlerock are human, a sheriff’s deputy said Friday.
It is undetermined if the human bones are from only one person, Deputy Joana Warren of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said, adding it was unknown how long the remains have been there.
“They are still additional remains that are being processed by the coroner’s office,” Warren said.
Deputies are not seeking suspects at this time, she said.
Homicide detectives were sent about 3:55 p.m. Thursday to the 30900 block of 106th Street in an area known as Juniper Hills, according to sheriff’s Deputy Morgan Arteaga.
The property had a burned-out structure and car on it, according to a news videographer, who said investigators used orange flags to mark several locations on the property.
Arteaga called the investigation “active and ongoing.”
The sheriff’s department did not disclose how the remains came to light.
Sheriff’s homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the incident to call them at (323) 890-5500.
