A person is in custody for questioning after Huntington Beach authorities excavated human remains from a mobile-home park this weekend.

Police were called to a mobile home park on Slater Avenue Saturday afternoon after several residents reported a foul odor in the area.

Authorities investigated and eventually excavated human remains of an adult female behind a home on the property. It was not immediately clear how long the person had been deceased or a cause of death.

Authorities called the death suspicious.

One person was taken into custody for questioning just after midnight Sunday morning. The person's identity was not released.

Neighbors are shocked, saying the mobile-home park is family friendly. They would often see children playing at the property where the body was found.

Resident Irene Correa said she noticed the unusual odor over the weekend.

"Just strange smells," Correa said. "We thought it was cats or dogs leaving their mess. We never imagined it was gonna be what they told us, that they found a human body."

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Huntington Beach police tipline at (714) 375-5066 or provide anonymous information to OC Crime Stoppers at 1(855) TIP-OCCS
