Homi­cide de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dis­cov­ery of hu­man re­mains found Wed­nes­day west of Magic Moun­tain Park­way and Railroad Av­enue.

De­tec­tives with the Los An­ge­les County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment Homi­cide Bu­reau up­dated in­for­ma­tion re­leased ear­lier in the day about re­mains hav­ing been found by util­ity work­ers.

On Wed­nes­day morn­ing, shortly after 11 a.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Val­ley Sher­iff’s Sta­tion re­sponded to re­ports of re­mains found in the Santa Clara River wash, not­ing at the time they were un­sure if the re­mains were hu­man or an­i­mal.

“We have con­firmed that there is an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into pos­si­ble re­mains found,” Shirley Miller, spokes­woman for the SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion, said Wed­nes­day.

After a cou­ple of hours of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, de­tec­tives an­nounced the re­mains were hu­man.

Shortly after 1:45 p.m., Deputy Ar­mando Viera Jr., wrote in a news re­lease that the re­mains were hu­man, but that the iden­tity of the de­ceased in­di­vid­ual was un­known.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent is en­cour­aged to con­tact the Los An­ge­les County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment’s Homi­cide Bu­reau at 323-890-5500.
