A body in the advanced stages of decomposition was located in a Montebello riverbed after appearing to have been there “for an extended period of time,” police said Sunday.
Officers responded Saturday around 4:19 p.m. to a report of a deceased person being found, a Montebello Police Department news release stated. They then discovered the body located on the embankment of an overflow control channel.
The person’s age, gender and ethnicity were not immediately known due to the advanced stage of decomposition.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective A. Martinez at 323-887-1200, extension 248, or Detective R. Zabala at 323-887-1200, extension 254.
