Posted: Updated:

BURBANK, Calif. - The body of a Richland pilot has been found on a Southern California freeway off-ramp.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office says 55-year-old Lee Clifford Morris was found Tuesday night in Burbank. Officials say the body was found near the Scott Road off-ramp of Interstate 5 near Bob Hope Airport.

Burbank police officers responding to a man-down call just before 6 p.m. found the body.

The Los Angeles Times reports detectives are waiting on coroner's officials to determine a cause of death. Detectives told The Times there were no obvious signs of injury and no evidence Morris had been struck by a car. His wallet and identification were also with him, indicating robbery was probably not a motive.
