January 27, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
A body was found inside a van in Sylmar on Sunday, but the big question facing investigators is who it belongs to.Firefighters made the discovery in the Pacoima Wash just before 7:30 Sunday morning.

They say the blue van was underneath the bridge at Gavina Avenue.

So far there is no word on the gender of the dead person or a potential cause of death.

Police aren't sure how the van ended up in the wash, but it was reportedly overflowing after Saturday night's storm.
