Human skeletal remains found in northern Altadena

ALTADENA — Homicide detectives are investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains along a remote section of Fair Oaks Avenue at the northern end of Altadena late Wednesday, authorities said.
Little information was available late Wednesday regarding the discovery, which was reported just before 12:30 p.m. in the 3900 block of Fair Oaks Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.
The remains were initially described as skeletal human remains, including a skull, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Joe Bale said. No further description of the bones or exactly where and how they were found was available.
With the remote location on the edge of the Angeles National Forest and diminishing daylight working against investigators, many questions were expected to remain unanswered until Thursday.
“Due to the terrain, weather and hour of darkness, detectives will respond tomorrow, along with personnel from the coroner’s office, and continue their investigation,” according to Lt. Holly Francisco of the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
