Paso Robles police found the burnt body of a homeless man at his campsite in the Salinas riverbed on Tuesday afternoon. 

Anthony Suarez had lived in a tent just behind JC Penny on the riverbank for years . Friends suspect the Army veteran was trying to stay warm when his tent caught fire.

“He was well liked,” said Kaleb Bussey, a man who had also camped along the riverbed. “He was a kind guy who brought others food and water.”

An investigation into the death is ongoing.
