On Friday, members of the Santa Barbara Fire Department were responding to a car accident when they found a body off Highway 101 between Mission Street and Carrillo Street.
Police said there were no signs of trauma or foul play. According to identification cards found in the man’s wallet, he is a 64-year-old from the Santa Barbara area.
Police are working to confirm the man’s identity.
On July 15, Santa Barbara County firefighters found the badly burned body of a man in the remnants of a fire that burned alongside Highway 101 about six miles south of Buellton.
A month later, the victim of a potential homicide was identified as 48-year-old Bernardo Alvarez of Tarzana. He was last seen leaving a restaurant in Tarzana on July 14.
Officials said Alvarez was dead before he was burned. Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department are conducting a joint investigation.
