    This wash if you follow it,it leads very close to where Bryce overturned his truck 2 years ago in Castaic.He may have had a head injury in the roll over.I hate to say it but this would be about the time it takes for the body to be like the one found.2 years ago there was a sighting of a red head near Kmart who seemed homeless and or confused.Me and my roomy started asking the homeless kids that were living in the wash across from k-mart if they had seen a red headed boy.We knew kids were sleeping in the wash near the spot where this body was found.There was a brother and sister that panhandled the area back then,they slept in the wash by in and out burger..I haven’t seen then around for like 8 months.There were other sleeping down there to. .We actually went into the wash in that same area looking for Bryce.I so pray I’m wrong and it’s not him…Prayers to the family of who this is.

  27. i sure hope its not Bryce…how sad whoever it is.
