Jack Osborn of Placentia doesn't believe it happened the way they say it did. The San Bernardino County coroner, Osborn says, should not have said that Osborn's daughter, 14-year-old Wendy, was tortured before her body was found in the Chino Hills of San Bernardino County in January of last year. But authorities say it is true. What they don't know is who did it. Wendy Osborn was last seen alive as she walked to Tuffree Junior High School the morning of Jan. 20.

Jane Doe No. 18-02 was discovered two years ago, when an unleashed dog and its owner found her weathered, toothless skull at the bottom of a heavily wooded wash in the San Bernardino Mountains just off California Highway 330. Hampered by dense undergrowth and steep terrain, sheriff's search teams recovered her femur, cracked pelvic bone, and a vertebra scattered in the brush near the skull -- but there was nothing to reveal Jane's identity.

A La Canada Flintridge man who was arrested this week for allegedly murdering his wife and setting her body on fire may have unwittingly provided the key to his own arrest, authorities said Thursday. San Bernardino County sheriff's officials said they had no clues to the identity of the charred body found in the desert three weeks ago until Don Miralle, 46, contacted the county coroner last week.

Plans to renovate the county morgue and hire 14 more staff members were approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday. The San Bernardino County coroner's office is outdated and overcrowded, said Roger Jaska, chairman of the Sheriff's Coroner Advisory Committee, who presented the committee's recommendations to the board at the meeting Tuesday. Supervisors approved nearly $2 million in county funds for the project.
