The deceased female found along Highway 74 has been identified as Bianca Bogarin, 25, of Moreno Valley, according to the county Sheriff’s Department.
A cause of death is still undetermined.
When the body was found on Sunday, April 10, decomposition had already occurred sufficiently to obscure her race.
The department’s media bureau said, “Our department is investigating this death, and at this time it is unclear how the person died.”
This is an active and ongoing investigation, according to the Sheriff’s Department. Anyone with possible information should call Investigator Joshua Button at 760-393-3531.
The body was found near Strawberry Creek and mile marker 54 on Hwy. 74.
