A man found lying dead beside Angeles Crest Highway near mile marker 26.8 around 1:13 a.m. Wednesday morning was identified today by the Los Angeles Coroner’s office as 22-year-old Julio Robles-Castaneda of Pasadena.

Castaneda’s body showed evidence of gunshot wounds. The Coroner’s report today, however, does not cite a cause of death.

Pasadena homicide detectives are handling the case because that section of the highway is under Pasadena jurisdiction, police said.

Authorities have released no other information about the case, other than to say the investigation is continuing.
