An arrest has been made in connection to the murder of Carlos DeLeon, 35, of Guatemala, after human remains were found in Los Angeles’ North Hills neighborhood on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

Just after 3:30 p.m., LAPD officers reported they received information that DeLeon, who’d been reported missing since June, was deceased and that he was buried in the backyard of the North Hills residence.

Authorities stated that DeLeon’s remains were uncovered near the back of the property after they removed a structure and its concrete foundation.

Investigators arrested Russell Robinson, 48, who they said is a resident at the location where DeLeon’s remains were found.

Authorities say Robinson was booked into the Los Angeles Police Department Valley Jail and is being held without bail.

In June, family and friends of DeLeon reported that they had not seen or heard from him since the middle of the month, according to LAPD.
