Human remains were discovered off Angeles Crest Highway near the Lexus belonging to a 24-year-old Burbank man reported missing nearly two months ago, but authorities have not determined whether the cases are connected, coroner’s officials said Tuesday.
Gevork Boyadzhyan’s white Lexus sedan was located by authorities Sunday 400 feet off mile marker 65 of the highway, according to Lt. Brian Fitch of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station.
Human bones, along with items of clothing, were discovered near the car, authorities said.
Investigators have not identified the body or determined its sex or age, according Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.
“I don’t know if it’s related to that vehicle or not at this point,” Winter said.
The Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau is handling the investigation.
Boyadzhyan was last seen leaving his home near Grismer Avenue and San Fernando Boulevard at around 7:30 p.m. on July 20. At about 8:30 p.m., he sent a text message to a friend that read “Call me.”
