Authorities Friday were investigating a death of a Thousand Palms man whose body was found in Coachella Thursday morning.

Jorge Camargo, 47, was found near Vista Del Norte and Grenache Lane around 2 a.m. on Thursday, according to Sgt. Richard Carroll of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. He said a motorist drove by the area and saw Camargo’s body in the street. Deputies from the Thermal Station responded shortly after to an unknown trouble call.

Upon arrival, deputies found Camargo was dead due to unknown circumstances on the scene and the Central Homicide Unit subsequently began an investigation, Carroll said.

The investigation was ongoing and anyone with information was asked to call Central Homicide Investigator Brown at 951-955-2777.
