An investigation continued Tuesday following the discovery of a man’s body under suspicious circumstances in Desert Center.
On Oct. 18, deputies were sent to an agricultural area near Oasis and Kaiser roads at about 4 p.m., where they found 46-year-old Thanh Phuoc Tran of Hollywood dead inside a structure, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Rick Espinoza.
Following the discovery, sheriff’s officials labeled the death suspicious, and investigators with the Central Homicide Unit took over the investigation.
Espinoza said this week that the investigation remained ongoing.
“This is an active investigation and no additional details are currently available,” he said.
Anyone with information was urged to call sheriff’s Investigator Sandoval at 951-235-2262, or 760-770-2236.
