San Bernardino County sheriff’s investigators are trying to solve the puzzle concerning human skeletal remains found under brush in Loma Linda on Sunday, May 19.

The discovery was made around 11:30 a.m. in the 11400 block of San Timoteo Canyon Road. A person looking around the property found the remains, Mara Rodriguez, a sheriff’s spokeswoman, said on Monday.

The remains were apparently found on a residential property with several large trees and bushes that is adjacent to a large vacant field.

No connection had been made between the property and the remains, said Rodriguez, who described them as “various bones.”

No determination had been made on the age and gender of the person. The department is investigating whether there were any people reported missing in the area, Rodriguez said.

It was unclear how long the person had been dead and how long the bones had been there.

The Coroner’s Office will perform an autopsy.

The department asked anyone with information on the case to call Detective Michael Roth at 909-890-4904. Callers can remain anonymous and contact WeTip at 800-782-7463 or at .
