IMPERIAL â€“ The body that was discovered Sunday has been identified as David Yglesias III, 14, the missing teen from Imperial.
Deputy Coroner Steven Green said, â€œWe had the forensic odontologist compare dental x-rays to the dental we had and it was a positive match.â€
The death is still under investigation by Imperial Police Department.
â€œWe are awaiting information back from Imperial PDâ€™s investigation before we rule on cause of death,â€ said Green, â€œsuicide or other.â€
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.
â€œWe received the notification about 8:30pm last night,â€ said Green. â€œWe immediately informed the family.â€
