Coroner's officials identified the decomposed human remains discovered in the Santa Clara riverbed in Santa Clarita two weeks ago, authorities said.

Robert March Fields, 48, is the person whose mostly skeletal remains was discovered in the wash area near the South Fork bike trail just south of Magic Mountain Parkway on Oct. 15, said Los Angeles County coroner's Captain John Kades.

A local resident found the body while searching for a stray pet, according to a sheriff's report.

Officials have not yet determined Fields' city of residence or cause of death and are awaiting test results for more information, Kades added.
