An investigation is underway into the cause of death of a man found Monday afternoon in an oil field in Huntington Beach.

According to Lt. Brian Smith of the HBPD, a local resident discovered the decomposing remains of what’s believed to be a male adult in the area of Talbert Avenue and Edwards Street.

He notified police, who responded at 5:37 p.m. to that location. They found not only the body but also property nearby they believe belonged to the dead man. HBPD detectives along with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Crime Lab and Coroner Division are conducting the investigation.

At this time, according to Lt. Smith, the cause of death has not been determined, so it’s considered “suspicious.”  Anyone with information on this situation is asked to call the HBPD Tip Line at (714) 375-5066.
