Monterey County authorities are asking anyone who traveled through the Aromas area last week to contact them with any details that could assist them in a homicide investigation.
On Friday morning, deputies report finding the body of a male in some brush on the side of Carpenteria Road, east of San Jan Road near Aromas.
The body appears to have been shot, according to the sheriff’s office.
Authorities have identified the body, but that identity has not been released pending notification of the victim’s next of kin.
