    CA - Los Angeles Co., Remains in shallow grave, Aug'15 - Maria Delrefugio Chavez

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/l...806-story.html

    "Authorities told reporters at the scene little about the dig and refused to say who the missing person was because it might compromise a potential homicide investigation.


    The person investigators from the L.A. County sheriff's and coroner's departments are looking for is not believed to have been a resident at the home in the 700 block of Elsberry Avenue, officials said."

    Video, so far no remains found, however cadaver dogs indicated there is reason to search the yard..imo.

    "The information is pretty specific where to look in the yard," Lewandowski said. From a helicopter above, members of the Coroner's Special Operations Response Team (SORT) were seen using hand tools to probe and sift through soil being excavated from holes dug in the yard, in some cases in areas where hardscape had to be moved first.
    Members of the family of four living at the house now and since before 2009 were brought outside and later questioned by investigators. Family members have been "cooperating," and investigators do not believe the family is involved in the missing persons case, Lewandowski said."

    From your link; I wonder if they hired someone to do landscaping; that person buried the remains there.

    Never thought of that before, but thinking of it now- maybe there are a number of cases where that has happened!

    More info:

    We have recovered skeletal remains of a body,'' Ed Winter of the coroner's office said. "It has not been identified yet, and it'll be a process that we'll follow through in trying to get the body positively ID'd as soon as possible.''

    It was unclear how long it will take to identify the remains.

    Sheriff's officials would only say the investigation involves the whereabouts of a person reported missing in 2009. Authorities declined to identify the missing person, described only as an adult.

    I thought they were looking for a female too but couldn't find why I thought that so I figured that was an assumption on my part, lol. Didn't Bob Harrod goes missing in 2009?
    Where's Logan Tucker?

    I had not seen that, only that yesterday it did seem like the male found in a different case was mixed up with the person in this case and quickly retracted.

    But just now, catching up, I clicked on dotr's link here: http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/lo...320900061.html

    And note the intro banner on the 2nd video down says "Excavation Remains of Missing Woman to Resume Friday"
    So that's been there a couple days?

    On the local news, they interviewed a middle aged woman who lived in this house. She has lived there for more than 20 years and she was in shock that the cops were looking for a buried body there. Then the detective was intervirewed and he said the family that lived in the home had NO CONNECTION or involvement in the crime. I feel awful for them.

    I wonder if the body was buried by the landscaping service? What a great place to hide your dead girlfriend---a totally random place where you were hired to plant new bushes?

    "Video from the scene showed investigators drilling a hole deep into the ground and meticulously removing dirt that was put into buckets."
