Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a deceased woman whose body was found Sunday, August 14, 2016, in a remote area along Gorman Post Road, north of California State Route 138, in Lebec, which is several miles north of Castaic.
The woman’s body was found in the late afternoon of Sunday, August 14, 2016, lying in the brush by a motorist during a rest stop in that area.
The victim is a female, either White or of Hispanic descent, 25 to 35 years old, approximately 5’1” tall, and weighing approximately 96 pounds. The victim had blue eyes and her hair was dyed a dark burgundy color. The victim had several tattoos on her body, including the names “Rylee” and “Brayden.”
The victim appeared to be unconscious, which prompted the motorist to call 9-1-1. Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies and fire rescue personnel responded and discovered the victim suffered trauma to the head. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
