Body found along rural road in south Sacramento County

A body of a young man was found along a country road this morning in southern Sacramento County.

A woman who lives in the vicinity of Dillard and Riley roads south of Elk Grove reported discovering the body about 1:30 a.m. The dead man was estimated to be in his 20s or 30s.

He may be either white or Hispanic, a sheriff's official said.

The head and the body of the man showed signs of trauma. However, a Sacramento County Sheriff's spokesman said it had not been determined how the man died.

Homes in the rural area are far apart, providing fewer residents to interview about possible sightings of people in the area early this morning.

Detectives will be looking into whether the man died at the scene or was dumped at the edge of the road.
