Sunday, July 11, about 4 pm the San Diego Sheriff's homicide department, the San Diego Medical Examiner, a forensic anthropologist and Fallbrook Sheriff's deputies responded to the report of a citizen that there was a dead body at or near a pond in Fallbrook. The pond was near Del Valle and Highland Oaks.
According to San Diego County Lt. Thomas Seiver in homicide, the cause and manner of death are unknown. "We don't have any suspicion of foul play at this time. We were there to document and preserve the scene in case during the medical examiner's investigation they determine there was foul play."
He indicated that the body was mostly skeletal remains and the identification and sex of the body was not apparent and that it would be determined by the medical examiner's office. Lt. Seiver was able to verify that it was not a child's body. When asked if it was possibly Maya Milette's body, the missing mom from Chula Vista, Lt. Seiver said it was, "highly unlikely."
