    CA - Ontario, Male body in refrigerator on street, Sept'17 - Jason Daniel Garcia

    Body Found in Refrigerator in Ontario Industrial Area

    A body has been found inside a refrigerator on a street in an industrial area in southwestern San Bernardino County.

    Ontario Police Sgt. Jeff Higbee said officers were called to the scene around 6 a.m. Tuesday. The man's body was discovered inside a refrigerator on a block lined with industrial businesses in the city about 40 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

    Higbee said it appeared the man was about 20 years old.

    It appears the body was placed in the refrigerator, which was then dumped in the street outside a fenced-in property.

    The discovery was made in the 700 block of South Hope Avenue, the Ontario Police Department tweeted.

    A male passerby spotted the fridge -- which had been left in the middle of the street -- shortly before 6 a.m., Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee said. He who opened it and saw the deceased man inside.

    Police have not yet identified the victim, who is believed to be in his 20s, according to Higbee.

    A cause of death was not immediately known, but there were no obvious signs of trauma on the body, which was fully clothed, Higbee told the San Bernardino Sun.

    It was also not immediately clear how or when the fridge was placed in the street; police believed it was possibly dumped at the location, according to the newspaper.

    The victim has not been identified. He is believed to be in his 20s. The body didn’t have any obvious signs of trauma and was fully clothed, Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee said. Kelly said he was wearing a hoodie.

    It was unclear how long the man may have been inside the refrigerator.

    Detectives were questioning people who live and work in the area, which is a mix of industrial businesses and homes, to find out if anyone saw anything or could shed light on how the refrigerator wound up there, Higbee said. Police suspect it may have been driven to the area and dumped, he said.
    Several employees of a nearby business said the refrigerator wasn’t there when they started their shift about 4:30 a.m.

    Maria Gallegos, who’s lived in the area since 1968, said she was shocked to hear of the discovery.
    “Nothing like this has ever happened,” Gallegos said, standing outside the police tape with her sister and grand-niece.

    I didn’t see anything, but around 5 a.m., my little dogs were barking and barking,” she said.

    I'm not sure. They IDd him right away from what I could tell. I don't think they ever found the driver though.
