Decomposing remains found in car are human, officials say
The decomposing remains found in a vehicle parked in the Fairfax district near West Hollywood on Saturday are human, coroner's officials said Sunday.
Los Angeles police responded to a vehicle parked near Willoughby and North Genesee avenues after reports of a foul odor coming from the area, said Sgt. Frank Preciado.
Officers found decomposing remains in the vehicle but were not immediately able to tell if it was a body.
Coroner's officials said Sunday morning that they had not identified the victim nor determined a cause of death, and the investigation was ongoing.
Neighbors told KTLA the black Cadillac Escalade had been parked in the same spot since Thursday.
