SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego Police are investigating after a body was found inside the trunk of a car in Mountain View Sunday morning.

According to the department, officers responded to the 500 block of South 45th Street just after 7 a.m. after receiving reports of a body discovered inside a vehicle. "The vehicle was located by sanitation workers cleaning alleys in the area," police said.

"The body was wrapped in a blanket and positioned inside the trunk of a blue 2019 Honda Insight parked in the alley," the department added.

The man has been identified, but his name is not being released at this time. Police described the man as a 45-year-old Hispanic male.
