Remains of Three People Found on Antelope Valley Property

A neighbor told NBC4 deputies have visited the property for several weeks

The remains of three people were found at a property north of Angeles National Forest, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Friday.

Homicide detectives were sent about 3:55 p.m. Thursday to the 30900 block of 106th Street in an area known as Juniper Hills, according to Deputy Morgan Arteaga of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The community is about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

They resumed the search Friday morning when investigators confirmed the remains are human.

The property had a burned-out structure and car on it. Investigators used orange flags to mark several locations on the property.

Arteaga called the investigation "active and ongoing." It was not immediately clear whether the discovery was tied to three people reported missing in the area.

The sheriff's department did not disclose how the remains came to light. A neighbor said deputies have visited the property several times in recent weeks.
