By Z107.7 News, on June 27th, 2016
We have sketchy details about a body that was found in the desert east of Twentynine Palms Saturday afternoon. According to a Sheriff’s report, 911 received a call about 11:45 a.m. from a man—who refused to give his name—that he found a dead body leaning up against a fence near Gold Crown Road and Highway 62 in Wonder Valley. The man refused to stay on the line or at the scene until deputies arrived. Deputies and California Highway Patrol officers searched the area for about two hours before finding the body. The Sheriff’s report indicates that there were no signs of foul play or trauma to the body. A wallet with identification was found on the body; the coroner is attempting to verify if the body matches the ID.
