San Bernardino County Probe Launched After Human Remains Unearthed in Loma Linda NeighborhoodSource: Google Street View

The quiet of a Loma Linda neighborhood was disrupted when human remains were found at a local residence, prompting a death investigation by San Bernardino County authorities. The grisly discovery was made in the 11400 block of San Timoteo Canyon Road on Sunday morning, as reported by Nixle. Deputies from the Central Station and the Sheriff’s Specialized Investigations Division are now piecing together the circumstances behind the remains, which were found at approximately 11:29 a.m.

Detective Michael Roth from the Specialized Investigations Division is leading the inquiry with an air of urgency as the identity of the deceased and how they came to be in that serene suburban stretch of San Bernardino County remains a mystery; images from SkyFOX captured the scene, a patrol SUV parked solemnly in front of a home adjacent to a moving truck, with officers engaging with someone at the front of the property, according to footage shown by FOX LA.

While details surrounding the case are scant, the bones are scheduled for an autopsy to unravel the story they hold—years encapsulated within calcium and marrow, now evidence in a narrative no one yet knows. The autopsy seeks to reveal not only the identity of the deceased but also the manner in which they met their end.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has called on the public's assistance in shedding light on this case, urging anyone with information to step forward and reach out to Detective Roth. Inquiries can be kept confidential by contacting We-Tip at 1-800-78-CRIME or through their website, as stated by the Sheriff-Coroner Department.
