RIVERSIDE (CBS) — Officials in Riverside are trying to determine how a body ended up in a vacant field.

Riverside police officers received a 6:59 a.m. call about the discovery near Tyler Street and Jurupa Avenue, Riverside Police Department Sgt. David Amador said.

It was not immediately known how long the body was at the location.

Amador said the body was so badly decomposed,  the gender, age and race of the person was not immediately determined.

He asked anyone with information about this case to call Riverside police Detective Jim Simons at (951) 353-7138.
