Body in Concrete: Who Was The Man Killed In Santa Fe Springs?
Who is the man whose body was left to rot in concrete in Santa Fe Springs?
That's the question police are trying to answer today after finding a man encased in cement at a Santa Fe Springs heating and air conditioning facility in California. Police went to search the business after they received an anonymous tip saying that it was believed there was a homicide on the premises.
After receiving the call about the Coleman Luxaire facility, police "were able to locate a person of interest, and further information led them to the heating and air conditioning business in the 9400 block of John Street," department spokesman Brad White said.

After smashing the concrete and excavating the body, it still remains unclear who the mysterious victim was and why he allegedly had a feud with 35-year-old suspect, Juan Alberto Galviz, who has been arrested and is being held on bail for $1,007,500.
"We're not concerned about a threat to public safety because we're no longer looking for anyone else," Captain Aviv Bar told reporters. Nevertheless Santa Fe residents have been shaken by the vicious killing that left a body in concrete, no clear motive or leads regarding the identity of the victim.
Neighbors also became increasingly alarmed about the bizarre body-in-concrete story when they heard that police were unable to locate the owner of the heating and air conditioning facility. "I usually see the owner and his kids playing soccer outside of the business," Tracy Smothers, an employee at Rosemead Oil Products, which is located across from the facility, said.
