Coroner identifies man found dead near Roseville trail

A man whose body was found near a well-used trail in Roseville last week has been identified by the Placer County Coroner’s Office as Brenen Thomas Bellacera, 28, of Roseville.

County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday that the cause and manner of death are pending.

A bicyclist contacted Roseville police at 5:45 a.m. July 28 after spotting the body of a man below an East Roseville Parkway bridge.

Police said a preliminary investigation indicated the man fell or jumped from the bridge, dropping 50 to 60 feet to the Miners Ravine Trail in the parkway near Orvietto Drive.
