Body found in Irwindale storage; Son arrested

IRWINDALE, Calif. The body of Miguel Pedraza, 62, was found at A1 Mini Storage at 4391 Irwindale Ave.

Investigators said his 24-year-old son, Jonathan Pedraza, tried to break out of the secured property by driving his car through the fence because he didn't have a security code to get out of the storage facility.

When employees refused to open the gate, he drove through it.

A short time later, the same vehicle was involved in a traffic crash in /*Baldwin Park*/.

Further investigation led police back to the storage facility, where they found Pedraza.

Authorities are investigating a possible motive.
