A homicide investigation was underway in San Bernardino on Thursday after a body was found in the trunk of a car, officials said.

Officers responded to the 600 block of West Courtland Drive just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday to check out a suspicious vehicle, a news release from the San Bernardino Police Department stated. Residents told them it had been parked on the street for the past several days.
