Scott Weber (NBC) | Jul 24, 2011

The body of a 19-year-old man that was found buried in the backyard of a Pico Rivera home earlier this week has been identified, it was reported.

An autopsy concluded that Joseph Rubalcaba died from a gunshot wound to the head, Los Angeles County Department of Corner’s Lt. Larry Dietz told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Family members discovered the body Wednesday evening at a home in the 8500 block of Pico Vista Road where they say Rubalcaba frequented.

When no one answered the door , the relatives went to the backyard, where they discovered a freshly dug grave. They started to remove the dirt and found the body.

Carlos Leyva, a friend of Rubalcaba, told NBCLA the victim was a gang member and that his family wanted more for him.
