Bones of at least two people found in desert graves
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

VICTORVILLE — Authorities say the bones of at least two people have been found at what appear to be shallow graves in Southern California’s Mojave Desert.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department says a motorcyclist reported finding skeletal remains on Monday near Victorville. Coroner’s officials confirmed they’re human.

Sheriff’s investigators returned to the area Tuesday and Wednesday and dug up what appeared to be a shallow grave. Authorities say they found the remains of more than one person but it’s unclear how many, nor their age or gender.

Investigators say the remains appear to have been there for quite some time.

The Daily Press of Victorville says two and possibly three shallow graves are in the area near the Interstate 15 freeway.

Victorville is about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
