A body in concrete discovered at a California business is confirmed as a homicide, according to authorities. A man arrested allegedly murdered the victim after a "feud" took place. At this time, the body found in concrete Monday has not been identified.
Citing an ABC News report on Jan. 1, Whittier police officers received an anonymous tip about a possible homicide at a Santa Fe Springs business. The information received suggested a body was buried in concrete at Coleman Luxaire, an air conditioning and heating small business.
Additionally, the information pointed officers to a "person of interest," who was located at a nearby business.
During an investigation, officers met with Juan Alberto Galviz, 35. Armed with enough probable cause, officers obtained a search warrant for the business.
Using cadaver dogs and the assistance of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, a body in concrete was found and dug out.
Officers say an unidentified male was buried in fresh mortar. And while investigators say the murder victim is linked to a "feud," they are not sharing the details about that part of the investigation.
Galviz was arrested and charged in connection with the homicide and body in concrete found at the location.
Unnamed individuals familiar with the business say they know the owner and never observed any suspicious behavior. However, it's unknown what connection the suspect has to the business and owner.
