Human remains were found Tuesday in the Compton Creek area of Rancho Dominguez, but details were sketchy.

Homicide detectives were dispatched about 2:45 p.m. to the 20200 block of South Santa Fe Avenue, near East Del Amo Boulevard. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez could not immediately say if the remains were found in the creek, but said they were “in the vicinity” of it.

It was unclear how long the as-yet unidentified body may have been at the location or whether there were visible signs of trauma.

Anyone with information about the remains is encouraged to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
