Canyon Fire 2 Death- Body Found in Peter’s Canyon


From OC Register


Authorities on Friday, Oct. 13 found a body at Peter’s Canyon in the Canyon Fire 2 burn area, and are investigating the case as one involving a possibly suicidal person who went missing from Costa Mesa last month, Orange police said.

Orange police said that on Sept. 29 a man in Costa Mesa reported his roommate missing. Two days later, the person’s car was found in the parking lot of Peter’s Canyon. Inside were a suicide note and shotgun shells, said Sgt. Phil McMullin.

At that time, officers and park rangers searched the area, bringing in a helicopter to help search, but couldn’t find anyone. On Friday, fire personnel in the burned area found the burned remains. Nearby was a shotgun, McMullin said.

“We’re investigating it as possibly being the missing person,” he said, adding that the coroner’s office would determine identity and cause of death.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Orange Police Department at 714-744-7444.
