Kimberly was last seen leaving the city of Cotati on his bicycle to meet friends at a nearby park.

The landscaper found his body near two university music halls in an area filled with rugged bush.

Investigators believe Kimberly’s body was buried recently because it was not badly decomposed.

Following the discovery, police cordoned off a 3-acre area for evidence and removed the body.
