Homicide detectives are investigating car wreckage that may contain human remains off of Kanan-Dume Road in Malibu.
Hikers came across the wreckage this afternoon.
Investigators and rescue crews were sent to the upper part of Zuma Canyon, where the vehicle sits partway down a 500-foot high hillside. The area is near the heavily traveled section of Kanan between Malibu and Agoura Hills.
Dispatchers could not say how far down the cliff the car fell, or whether any human remains have been found, however, body recovery experts have been sent to the site.
The wreckage is down a steep hillside, about one quarter mile north of Tunnel 1 and five miles north of Malibu (that’s the first tunnel when you turn onto Kanan from PCH).
