Human remains discovered in Angeles National Forest north of Sunland

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST — Investigators uncovered human remains early Saturday in the Angeles National Forest near Big Tujunga Canyon Road, near the same spot where an apparent shallow grave that was ultimately found to contain animal remains was discovered last week, officials said.
“Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau (detectives), along with the Montrose Search and Rescue Team, were searching the area of Big Tujunga Canyon Road, mile marker 2.72, Angeles National Forest, when they discovered human remains,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.
No further description of the remains or the conditions in which they were found was released.
The Los Angeles County Department of Coroner’s Special Operations Response Team, which handles excavations of remains, was summoned to the scene.
No further information was released.
The grisly find comes 10 days after detectives were summoned to roughly the same portion of the forest, less than a quarter-mile away near mile marker 2.92 of Big Tujunga Canyon Road.
After a hiker discovered what sheriff’s officials described as a bloody shallow grave, homicide detectives and coroner’s officials were called to investigate.
No human remains were uncovered, officials said, however a plastic bag of animal remains believed to have been involved in ritualistic sacrifice was found.
