An investigation is underway in Shasta County after a body was found near a burned out shed and travel trailer Tuesday afternoon.

A man in his late 40’s was found in the 4600 block of Two Feathers Road, off of Gaspoint Road in Cottonwood around 1 p.m.

The property owners tell Action News Now they had been letting an old friend, who had been battling substance addiction, stay in the shed on their property.

They say they arrived home around 9:30 p.m. Monday and found the burnt trailer, but could not locate their friend.

The man was found with burns on his arms and legs, but a cause of death has not been identified.
