Man sought in case of body found burning in Porsche; police release video images of suspect


The San Bernardino Sheriff's Department is seeking the public's help in solving the case of a body found burning in a Porsche SUV on an onramp to the 15 Freeway in Devore.

The body was discovered Thursday night, and detectives have not identified the person, though they believe it was a man.

On Friday, authorities released surveillance video of a man possibly connected to the incident. He is described as being between 6-foot and 6-foot-2 and weighing 325 pounds. The suspect is possibly Latino or Samoan, and was seen wearing his hair in a short ponytail.

Authorities believe there is a Long Beach connection to the case. The suspect is believed to work and live in that city and was captured on videotape (see the KTLA video above) on Thursday afternoon at a Long Beach shopping center.

There is no motive for the incident, but detectives said foul play was involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department at (909) 387-3589.

he looks like an islander, they are usually the ones with pony-tails.

Looking for "INFOMATION"?? Look at the flyer the news guy is holding up... Nice spelling work from the Sheriff's office...

Tell the Sheriff 's Dept. to learn how to spell or is "INFOMATION" intended to communicate with the suspect? Geeze you think the reporter couldv'e pointed that out before flashing it on the air. It's hard to tell who's getting dumber, us or them.

an elephant in suspenders !

He sure is doing a lot of nervous pacing.
