BOYLE HEIGHTS, CA — If you are responsible for the dead teenager found in a storage container on the side of a California highway, police would like to talk to you.
Police where called to an off-ramp of Interstates 5 and 10 after a homeless person made the grisly discovery. The plastic container contained the naked body of 17-year-old Michelle Lozano. “It was partially covered in Target, or some kind of plastic bags, and she was face down in the bushes,” said LAPD Det. DeWain Fields.
Police are investigating Lozano’s death as a homicide and believe she may have been killed somewhere else and dumped from a moving vehicle as the tub was busted open when it was discovered. Her cause of death will be determined today after the The Los Angeles County coroner’s office conducts their examination.
I’m having trouble finding any details on the teen aside from her having a tattoo on each wrist, one reading “Love” and the other “Hate.” Other than that, nothing. Homicide detectives say Lozano is not listed on any missing persons reports.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Los Angeles police at 323-342-4100.Tags: California, container, Crime, Michelle Lozano, Murder, teen
