(This story has been updated to note that the CHP later tonight said authorities found no body in a bag as officers had earlier reported. The CHP said the officers’ report had been a mistake, and the call was then cancelled.)

A body was found in a bag on a street Sunday evening in Whittier.

The body was discovered near the intersection of Santa Gertrudes Avenue and Hillgate Drive just after 9 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

There was no immediate word on the gender or age of the victim. The victim’s name will be withheld pending notification of next of kin.

The death investigation was being handled by the CHP.
