Burning body discovered in Compton
A burning body believed to be that of a man was discovered early Wednesday morning near Compton High School.
L.A. County Sheriff's Department officers were called to the 300 block of West Cocoa Street at 3:15 a.m., said Sgt. David Infante, a spokesman for department. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The body was burned beyond recognition, but a preliminary investigation suggested it was an African American adult male, Infante said.
Homicide detectives are investigating the incident, Infante said.
