ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) -- Authorities have released the identity of an Escondido man whose body was found wrapped in a tarp in the trunk of an abandoned car in Anaheim earlier this week, but the mystery surrounding how he died and who killed him remained.

The body of Adrian Darren Bonar, 34, was discovered shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday when authorities were having an abandoned car towed along Santa Ana Canyon Road, just west of Gypsum Canyon Road, according to Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Daron Wyatt. But police released no information regarding a cause of death.

The body was wrapped in a blue tarp, as well as duct tape.

Bonar’s Facebook page described him as a veteran of the U.S. Army.

Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said investigators want to speak to anyone who has seen the victim recently.
