MORENO VALLEY - A woman's body was found at the foot of Box Springs Mountain just north of Moreno Valley, and the condition of the remains suggests foul play, authorities said on Wednesday, April 24.

The body was located about noon Tuesday in the 9000 block of Box Springs Mountain Road, near Pigeon Pass Road, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Sgt. Ben Ramirez said deputies were called to the location by a passer-by.

Homicide detectives were soon summoned and initiated an investigation to determine both the victim's identity and exactly how she died, which appeared suspicious, Ramirez said, without elaborating.

It was not immediately clear how long the remains had been there.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the sheriff's Central Homicide Unit at 951-955-2777.
