A corner’s spokesman said the body of an adult male was found in the creekbed behind Keep It Self Storage on Railroad Avenue (the old Hi-Chic curve), just north of the Wiley-Princessa bridge.
Lt. Tom Bryski of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said the call came in at about 7:50 a.m.
The victim apparently was a transient, Bryski said.
He said the man’s body was found in an area of brush where homeless people are known to live.
The victim’s girlfriend was present at the scene and may have made the 9-1-1 call, Bryski said.
The victim’s name, age and ethnicity were not immediately available.
