MODESTO, CA — A California woman was burying the body of her deceased cat when she discovered a missing man’s remains, police say.

The unidentified woman, who had only lived in the home for a short period of time, called police on Saturday.

The body was later identified as 26-year-old Jacob Sutton-Bubeck, who was reported missing in February by his brother, according to KCRA.

A coroner used Sutton-Bubeck’s dental X-rays to confirm his identity according to the New York Post.

On Tuesday, the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department said they were investigating Sutton-Bubeck’s death as a homicide.

Police have stated that they now hope to speak to anyone who may have knowledge of Sutton-Bubeck’s movements in order to help piece together a timeline.

“Due to the different variables that affect decomposition, it is impossible to identify a specific date that Jacob was murdered or when he was buried,” Detective Cory Brown stated in a press release. “That is why it is important to talk to people who may have seen him after that date to narrow down a specific timeline.”

Police said only “someone who has intimate knowledge of this crime and how it was committed” would know how Sutton-Bubeck was slain, according to The Modesto Bee.

Police have asked anyone with information on the crime to call Detective Cory Brown at (209) 567-4485. The investigation is ongoing.
