Human remains found near bike path

MONTEBELLO, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles County coroner will examine human remains found near a bike path in Montebello.

Sheriff's Lt. Dave Coleman tells the Los Angeles Times the remains were found Wednesday morning near the Rio Hondo bike path.

A coroner's official says age and gender had yet to be determined.

Montebello police are handling the investigation with help from the sheriff's department.

Coleman did not say whether the agencies believe the remains, which were strewn out near the trail, are a result of a homicide.

He did say the case is "suspicious."
