Last Updated: 165 days ago
SANTA ANA, Calif. - An autopsy has failed to determine what killed a man whose body was found in a trash bin along a remote Brea road.
The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/19wNLPe ) says the examination was performed Monday on 46-year-old Jose Paredes of Santa Ana.
Drug and other tests will now be conducted.
The body was discovered Friday afternoon along Brea Canyon Road.
Police say a driver had seen a green trash container beside the road for more than a week before deciding to check it out.
Paredes, who had a wife and children, was reported missing on June 17.
