This week's discovery of an abandoned vehicle near the Sacramento-Placer County line has turned into homicide investigation.

The vehicle was found around noon Wednesday, in a hidden area of a field near Watt Avenue and Baseline Road. The Placer County Sheriff's Department started an investigation.

"Since then, we have determined that there is body inside of the vehicle," Sgt. Lisa Bowman said. 

So Sergeant Lisa Bowman says Sacramento Sheriff's homicide detectives have taken over.

"Due to the belief that the person inside of the vehicle is part of an investigation that they are currently working," she said. 

Officials aren't releasing many details at this point because of the active investigation. The coroner's office is working to identify the body.
