Fresno County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the body found yesterday near Orange & Clayton.
Shortly before 3:00pm, deputies responded to the call in a eucalyptus grove in the 6700 block of S Orange Ave.
A resident of the property was walking in the area when she discovered what appeared to be human skeletal remains. She immediately contacted other family members who called the Sheriff’s Office.
