"Eliah Valdes" (also known as "Alia") was the possible name or alias of a young male driving a vehicle with two other occupants from Los Angeles to San Francisco to look for work. Sometime during the drive, the vehicle swerved off the roadway and collided with a tree, followed by the vehicle catching fire. The decedent was trapped inside with Oscar (1984) and perished in the blaze. The surviving occupant informed detectives of the decedent's possible name, that he was likely 15, and was from El Salvador. These details have not led to any sort of identification or next of kin.
