Detectives release name of man whose body was found set on fire near Covina

Detectives have released the name of a 22-year-old La Puente man whose body was found set on fire along Covina Hills Road last month.
The body of Angel David Grajiola was discovered by a sheriff’s deputy and an off-duty Los Angeles police officer about 3:45 a.m. Aug. 20 on a secluded stretch of Covina Hills Road, just west of Via Verde in an unincorporated county area southeast of Covina, Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau said Wednesday.
An autopsy had been performed and the death ruled a homicide, however Corina declined to say exactly how Grajiola died, citing the ongoing investigation.
The man was killed elsewhere before his body was left along the street and set ablaze, Corina said. He did not die as a result of the fire.
But detectives were still trying to figure out where the actual slaying took place, he said.
There was no suspect information available.
“We’re looking for the public’s help,” Corina added.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
