Dismembered body found in Hesperia

Firefighters battling a blaze in an empty field in Hesperia on Sunday discovered a man's burned and partially dismembered body, the San Bernardino Sun reported.

Firefighters and deputies responding to a fire on Mauna Loa Street and Seventh Avenue found the body just a few inches from the road after knocking down the blaze.

The victim has not been identified, and the body was too badly burned to determine even his race, the Sun reported.

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.
