The body of Christine Jo "CJ" Kunstmann was found July 15 partially buried in a remote area just north of Beaumont. Her cause of death remained under investigation, the Glendale News-Press reported.

Kunstmann was raised in La Crescenta, but had recently been living in Rancho Cucamonga. She was last seen at an apartment complex in Banning, visiting friends, officials said.

Her father, who lives in Nevada, reported her missing to Nevada authorities in June, Cornell said.
