The next of kin of the woman found dead in a clothing collection box in early October in Newhall has still not been identified, Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner officials said.
On the morning of Oct. 6, law enforcement officials reported that a woman was discovered inside a clothing collection box near the corner of Orchard Village Road and Lyons Avenue. Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, said at the time that, upon arrival, Los Angeles County Fire officials pronounced the woman deceased.
According to Sarah Ardalani, a spokeswoman for the L.A. Coroner’s office, the decedent has been identified.
