PALMDALE – Sheriff’s deputies have a warrant for the arrest of a suspect in the killing of a man whose body was found earlier this month in a portable toilet in east Palmdale, authorities said.

Deandre Jackson, 20, of Palmdale is accused of beating Juan Carlos Velasquez, 35, to death and stuffing the victim’s body in a portable toilet on a construction site at 10th Street East and Avenue Q-6, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Detective Ty Labbe said.

Jackson is an active member of a Los Angeles-based street gang with a violent criminal history, Labbe said.

Velasquez’s body was discovered by a construction worker about 9 a.m. May 2, authorities said. He was likely killed the previous night, Labbe said.

“A victim is dishonored in any homicide, but by all means, the way (his body) was placed makes this even more brutal,” Labbe said. “It’s very dishonoring.” Anyone with information about Jackson’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s homicide bureau at (323) 890-550 or their local sheriff’s station.
