The gruesome discovery was made about 5:30 a.m. on the 3700 block of North Del Rosa Avenue in San Bernardino. Investigators say the body, which may be that of the home's 80-year-old resident, appeared to have been there for possibly a few days.
The body hasn't yet been identified by the coroner. At this point, authorities aren't saying whether the burglary and discovery of the body are connected.
Property had also been removed from inside the residence by the burglary suspects, but was recovered nearby. The suspect description was only two males in dark clothing.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the San Bernardino Police Department at (909) 384-7272.
