Police detectives are investigating a possible homicide at a home in Southwest Bakersfield.
Neighbors tell 17 News a crime scene van was parked outside a home in the 5200 block of Shining Crag Avenue for several hours Tuesday.
The house is in a newer neighborhood off Stine Road, between Hosking Road and Panama Lane.
Detectives at the scene declined to describe their investigation.
Neighbors sent pictures to 17 News showing investigators digging in a planter behind the two-story house.
Neighbors also told 17 News they saw what appeared to be a body being removed from the property.
A coroner’s van was parked out front, but police did not release any more information Tuesday.
