A body possibly belonging to Sarah Alarid was located near the discovery of the vehicle that is reported as registered to the missing woman. The body hasn't officially been identified as belonging to her, but conversation is abuzz online with claims that this body is most likely the missing Santa Clarita woman. What appears to be a car accident might be something different, however, with other disturbing details surrounding this discovery. It appears that the car was found near a shallow grave -- which was empty.
On the surface, one would expect a young woman (possibly under the influence of alcohol from a festive occasion) to wreck on the curvy mountainous road. However, the presence of what appears to be a shallow grave adds a whole other disturbing element to the case. The body that was located also wasn't inside Sarah's car, which was overturned on its top. Police won't clarify how far from the vehicle the body was discovered, but the body wasn't discovered until a little time after the discovery of the vehicle and the empty grave. What does this mean? Hopefully more answers come out about these details.
While this body hasn't been officially confirmed as being Sarah Alarid, it's highly likely given the confirmation that it is her car that was located in the ravine. But was she murdered or was this a car wreck with a coincidental grave nearby? This is just so strange!
