Not many details have been released about the incident including, gender, name or how the body was discovered. Also unclear is whether the deceased person died of natural causes or if foul play is suspected.

The Victor Valley has seen freezing temperatures over the last few days leading to speculation the body might be of a transient man often seen walking in the area.  At this time the identity and cause of death remain under investigation. As a precaution investigators are required to tape off the area and treat the situation as a crime scene.
