On November 5, 2017 a transient in Sun Valley, California was walking along a hillside when he found a barrel.
The barrel appeared to have been burned. The same area had been engulfed in a fire only two months earlier.
The person opened the barrel lid, revealing what appeared to be bones and called 911. The skeleton was noted to previously having “pretty robust muscles”.
5’10, age 25-45. They may have died before 2008.
