Autopsy Today On Body Of Possibly Murdered Student

NBC LA reports that investigators have issued three search warrants in connection with the death of the 19-year-old missing teenager, Blaze Bernstein, whose body was found on Tuesday in some brush near Foothill Ranch Park.

Detectives told NBC they interviewed a friend of Bernstein's who was one of the last person to see him alive. According to police, the friend say he left the park an hour after meeting up with the victim before visiting his girlfriend in Tustin, but could not recall her last name or address. The friend told authorities that he returned to the park several hours later to look for Bernstein, but did not find him.

Sheriff's deputies found the body after Tuesday's storm helped reveal it. Officials wouldn't say if the body had been concealed or buried in some way, and did not comment on a cause of death. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed Thursday. 

Bernstein went missing on Jan. 2nd after telling relatives he was meeting up with friends and last seen around 11 pm that night. His loved ones reported him missing the next day after they were unable to get in touch with him. 

No suspects are in custody in connection with Bernstein's death. Officials are asking for the public's help and for anyone who may have information on the case to contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 714-647-7000.
