shallowOn Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 1:19 p.m., Apple Valley deputies were called to a residence in the 16000 block of Navajo Rd. to do a welfare check on the 63 year old male resident. Deputies arrived and made contact with the man’s 59 year old wife. After a short interview, deputies determined that the man died several weeks ago and had been buried in the back yard of the family home. The distraught female said the man died at home and she did not have the resources to give him a proper burial.

Sheriff’s Homicide Investigators, along with Coroner Investigators responded to conduct an investigation.

Investigators checked the back yard of the home and located a male in a shallow grave. There was no sign of trauma to the body. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

The investigation is ongoing and no additional information is available at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Apple Valley Station, Detective Brian Roper at (760)240-7400. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip Hotline at www.wetip.com.
