A Tijuana lady named Maria Elvira Quintanilla Cebreros, sued the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office over the cremation of her murdered son's remains. She has filed this lawsuit due to a violation of her religious beliefs.

According to the lawsuit, Jesus Fabricino Sanchez Cebreros, 33, resided with his mother in Tijuana and frequently came to the United States with a legitimate visa to visit his young son in San Diego. Cebreros claims in her 2020 lawsuit that the county failed to perform its mandatory duties and infringed her civil rights by failing to notify her that her son, Jesus Fabricio Sanchez Cebreros, died in 2019 and then cremated his remains without her permission.

According to the lawsuit, Jesus Cebreros informed his mother on May 20, 2019, that he would be visiting with a friend in the United States for a few days. Then, on June 10, an off-duty LAPD officer saw a black garbage bag on the south side of eastbound Interstate 60 in the City of Industry.

According to the claim, the officer stopped over to investigate, noted a bad odor coming from the bag, and phoned 911. When a California Highway Patrol officer arrived, he discovered a decaying hand emerging from the bag. An investigator from the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office arrived shortly after and examined the body, which was covered in black trash bags. According to the lawsuit, the death was ruled to be a homicide due to several stab wounds.

Cebreros claims that homicide investigators from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department collected different items of evidence at the site, including a Mexican passport and a driver's license with a phone number and address in Tijuana. Cebreros is expected to get $445,000 in damages for the infringement of her religious beliefs.
