    Another article: http://www.highdesert.com/news/hespe...dy-burned.html

    There doesn't seem to be an update yet, but the paper might only be a weekly.

    P.S. There's a picture of the crime scene with this article. Not a good one, but something to work with.

    There is an older man in Hesperia who went missing on the same day, but I think he was last seen in the afternoon while the body was found in the early morning.

    The older man was found deceased a few days ago in the desert after what I think was a quad accident. The newspaper here isn't very good at providing details or updating stories. It is a daily paper. As far as I know there hasn't been anyone reported missing that they have announced anyway and still no ID on the body. The area that the body was found isn't really a bad neighborhood. But it is very dark at night due to no streetlights almost anywhere around here except for main roads. If I hear of anything more, ill post.

    This sounds like a person who recently went missing. Otherwise, I would think of Bob Harrod, due to the location which is the same county in which his relatives live.

    But, he disappeared three years ago and I doubt someone has stored his body all this time and just now dug it up and burnt it.

    Hesperia can be a weird place. There are a lot of crazy people in the desert out there. I have cases in the Victorville courthouse (next town over) and it's bizarre.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!

    Yea Victorville, Apple Valley, Hesperia, and the surrounding towns are a little odd, that's for sure. You kinda have that small town mentality, but at the same time you have a big city feel. You can totally get lost in the deserts out here and wont be found for a long time, if ever. Lydia Garcia from Newberry Springs went missing on the desert, although they found a body a mile from her home, they still haven't updated her case, was it her? And sometimes talking to the press or police in this town makes you dizzy with all the runarounds. I want to move.

    I'm glad they found the older man. It certainly sounded like he must have had an accident with his ATV.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the unidentified person is from somewhat out of the area -- not real far, but a few towns over.

    Someone went to great lengths to make sure he wasn't identified. No reports of missing people either. I think this might go a long while unsolved

    How poigniant your posts are in hindsight - after the finding of the McStay family in Victorville.

    This thread says identified, but I can't find any trace of ID for the burnt remains found in Hesperia. Media or SB Coroner. The Namus case doesn't give access now, so is that how we know he has been identified?

    The only ID I've seen for Hesperia (relatively) recently is Ruben Hubacek, but he was found in an aqueduct, with his vehicle.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    I haven't been on this site for quite a while and decided to check it out again. I searched "Victorville" and this came up. I have NO clue who this was, I can't find anything related to it. Anyone have any clue?
