Dead body found in washed-up van

SYLMAR (KABC) 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.
