Authorities seek help in case of burned, dismembered man

October 15, 2012 |  6:36 am

San Bernardino County coroner's officials will perform an autopsy to help identify a man who was found partially dismembered and badly burned near Hesperia.

Homicide investigators have not yet determined the victim's race, age or identification because of the damage caused by the fire.

San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies and firefighters responded to a report of a fire just after 6:35 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Mauna Loa and 7th streets.

Firefighters put out the flames and realized it was a burning body, according to a sheriff's news release.

Anyone with information is urged to call Sheriff's Department detectives at 909-387-3589.

A San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department detective told the Victorville Daily Press that the man was probably killed somewhere else and dumped in the field.
