May 26, 2000

SUNLAND — Police said Thursday they suspect foul play in the death of a 32-year-old Los Angeles man whose body was found on a dirt road in Sunland.

Authorities said Mark Anthony Escalante was found early Wednesday in the 8300 block of McGroarty Street by someone walking a dog.

Escalante had visible head trauma, said Det. Charles Lenane of the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division.

"We are considering this very suspicious," he said. "It looks like someone dumped his body out there."

An autopsy is pending.
