May 11, 2012 |  9:23 am

The body found on Angeles Crest Highway Thursday morning has been identified as 35-year-old Noe Vasquez, a Los Angeles County coroner's officials said.

Coroners officials have not yet completed an autopsy on Vasquez to determine his cause of death, although authorities on Thursday said he may have died of a gunshot wound, the La Cañada Valley Sun reported.

Larry Dietz, a spokesman for the coroner's office, said officials have not yet determined Vasquez's city of residence.

Vasquez's body was discovered near the Mile 27 marker on Angeles Crest Highway above La Cañada Flintridge early Thursday morning, prompting authorities to close the road for most of the day.
