Three Fort Bragg, Calif., men have been arrested on suspicion of murder, robbery and conspiracy in the death of a Santa Ana man.
The body of Donald Perez, 39, was found Thursday east of Fort Bragg. He had been missing since Sept. 15.
Authorities said August Stuckey, 19, Tai Abreau, 19, and Aaron Channel, 20, were arrested and are being held on $100,000 bail.
Deputies received a tip Thursday that Perez may have been killed. They expanded a search for him and found his body about 1 1/4 miles outside Fort Bragg on a logging road. They had found his car on the same road earlier.
Investigators said a cause of death had not been determined. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
