IMPERIAL – The body that was discovered Sunday has been identified as David Yglesias III, 14, the missing teen from Imperial.
Deputy Coroner Steven Green said, “We had the forensic odontologist compare dental x-rays to the dental we had and it was a positive match.”
The death is still under investigation by Imperial Police Department.
“We are awaiting information back from Imperial PD’s investigation before we rule on cause of death,” said Green, “suicide or other.”
The body was found just east of Imperial with a gun nearby.
The gun that was found with the body was sent to the FBI so they can do their analysis.
The body was autopsied Tuesday and a gunshot to the head was found.
“We received the notification about 8:30pm last night,” said Green. “We immediately informed the family.”
