A story for every victim

Tron Scott Mayo Jr., 31

Tron Scott Jr. Mayo, a 31-year-old black man, was pronounced dead Monday, Oct. 23, after his body was found on an access road half a mile north of the 35500 block of Ridge Route Road in the Ridge Route area north of Castaic, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Deputies were called to the area at 1 p.m. regarding a person in need of medical attention, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Rodney Moore. 

They found Mayo’s body at the mouth of what appears to be a gated driveway or access road off Ridge Route Road, Moore said. 

Mayo, an Inglewood resident, was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:24 p.m., according to coroner’s records. The cause of death was listed as multiple gunshot wounds and stab wounds. 

KHTS Radio reported that unnamed officials at the scene said it appeared Mayo was killed elsewhere and his body was dumped in the driveway. 

Moore wouldn’t confirm that report; he said detectives are withholding many details for now.

“There are things about this case that aren’t typical, that only the murderer would know,” Moore said. “We don’t want to release any information that could jeopardize the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
