Man buried in forest was beaten to death

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a man whose remains were found near a shallow grave in the Angeles National Forest was beaten to death.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/YjP7XB ) says authorities identified him Wednesday as 25-year-old Nicholas Carter.

The Glendale man vanished early this month.

Hikers later stumbled on a shallow grave in the Angeles National Forest near the foothill community of Sunland.

Carter's remains were found some 10 days later about a quarter of a mile from the gravesite.

Sheriff's Lt. Mike Rosson says an autopsy concluded that Carter was beaten to death.

Investigators have no suspect or motive.
