A body discovered last week in the Badlands has been identified as a 35-year-old Riverside man, officials said Monday.
Thomas James Fulk was found off the side of Jack Rabbit Trail, near the 60 freeway on Oct. 29, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Sergeant Jeff Buompensiero.
An autopsy was conducted the next day, he said.
"Based upon the results of the autopsy this case will be handled as a homicide," the sergeant said. "The cause of death will not be released at this time."
Investigators asked that if anyone have information for police, to contact them at 760-393-3500.
