SBC sheriff's office

The county sheriff’s office is investigating a suspected homicide after finding a body over an embankment and a baseball bat in a rural area southwest of San Juan Bautista.
The sheriff’s office is investigating the suspected homicide in the 3200 block of the Salinas Grade/San Juan Grade Road, according to an email from Capt. Eric Taylor, of the San Benito County Sheriff office. The area of the body’s discovery was southwest of San Juan Bautista and east of Highway 101 in the county.
There was no age range yet but the deceased person appeared to be a male, Taylor told the Free Lance on Wednesday afternoon.
When asked for information about the death and any weapons that may have caused it, Taylor mentioned a baseball bat. Taylor estimated the death happened recently, in the last 24 to 48 hours.
“There’s a baseball bat at the scene,” he said. “They may be related.”
