Central Coast Death Being Called Suspicious

The death of a Central Coast man is now being called suspicious. The body of Primitivo Pacheco Ortega was found near Hog Canyon, on the outskirts of Paso Robles Sunday morning.

The 20 year old man’s body was found next to a road. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office detectives aren’t saying why they consider the death to be suspicious.

They also aren’t releasing details on the cause of death. Investigators are trying to figure out where the victim was Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
