On September 20, 2021, Joshua Crosier, a 27-year old male resident of Hemet, was reported missing by his family members after they lost contact with him in late August of 2021.

On August 2, 2022, after searching several locations male remains were located believed to be Crosier’s body, the remains were located in the county area of Perris. This is an active investigation and anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Investigator Deanne of the Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955-2777.
