 Police Investigating a Deceased Body Found



MODESTO, CA Modesto Police are investigating a body found on the southwest corner of Claus Road and Creekwood Avenue, across from Johansen High School.


On Friday January 11, 2013 at about 7:30 P.M., Modesto Police officers arrived to the corner of Claus Road and Creekwood Avenue in southeast Modesto, for a report of a suspicious object discovered by a passing citizen. When officers arrived, they located the deceased body, which was near the base of the foot bridge.  The landscape of the area is secluded due to large shrubs and trees.


Homicide detectives and crime scene investigators are in the initial stages of processing the crime scene.  Due to the position of the victim, investigators will not be able to determine the age, sex, or condition until the scene has been processed and the Stanislaus County Coroner's office is able to recover the body.
