(KGTV) -- A body found wrapped in a tarp in the trunk of an abandoned Lexus in Anaheim was identified as an Escondido man.

The Anaheim Police Department said the body of 34-year-old Adrian Darren Bonar was discovered on the morning of Oct. 17 when an abandoned car was being prepared to be towed from Santa Ana Canyon Road under the supervision of California Highway Patrol officers.

Upon opening the trunk, officers saw something wrapped in tarp inside that “was a similar size and shape of a human body,” police said.

Bonar, according to police, was “known to frequent motels in North San Diego County and Los Angeles County.”

The cause of his death was not immediately released, and it is unclear if he was the owner of the Lexus.

Anyone who has seen Bonar or has been in contact with him over the past few weeks is asked to call 714-321-3669.
