Police are trying to identify the body of a man who was found in newly poured concrete inside a Santa Fe Springs business.

The body was discovered Sunday at a heating and air conditioning business after Whittier police, who patrol the city, received information about a possible killing.

Juan Alberto Galviz, 35, was arrested Sunday in connection with the death. He is being held in lieu of $1,007,500 bail, police said.

Detectives and coroner's officials found the body after initially going to a another business. There, detectives "were able to locate a person of interest, and further information led them to a nearby business in the 9400 block of John Street," said department spokesman Brad White.

The concrete was broken up and excavated, and the body of a male adult victim recovered with the help of coroner's officials.

Detectives say a preliminary investigation indicated that a crime had resulted from a feud between the victim and Galviz.
