CALABASAS — Skeletal remains found on state park land in Calabasas were those of a man, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office reported Saturday.

Caltrans workers discovered the remains about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday along a hiking trail in the 25100 block of Calabasas Road, according to Deputy Kimberly Alexander of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Other than determining that the remains belonged to a man, coroner’s investigators have found no other identifying features, officials said.

It was the third time in the past several months that human remains were found in the area, which is several miles from the site in Malibu Creek State Park where 35-year-old Tristan Beaudette, a father of two from Irvine, was shot to death on June 22, a crime that remains unsolved.

After Beaudette’s death, sheriff’s officials said they investigated six other reports of shootings or calls about possible gunfire occurring near the park going back to November 2016.

Since Beaudette’s death, sheriff’s deputies have responded to at least nine reports of gunfire in the area.
