Three bodies found in remote San Bernardino County linked to missing persons report


According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, three sets of human remains discovered in a remote area near Barstow last month are linked to a missing person report filed in July.

Authorities have identified one of the victims as Enrique Saltos Gallegos, a 38-year-old resident of Nuevo in Riverside County who was reported missing in July, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

Although authorities have not positively identified the other two victims, investigators “believe the other two victims may be two other missing persons with Gallegos,” the department said.

The department did not specify how Gallegos or the other victims were killed or comment on a suspect or motive.

The remains were discovered Nov. 18, but Gallegos wasn’t positively identified until Thursday, the department said. Authorities have released no information about the two people who went missing with Gallegos in July.

A call to the sheriff’s department requesting additional information was not immediately returned Saturday.
