Barnes refused to discuss what murder weapon was allegedly used. He alleged he returned to the park several hours later but could not find Bernstein.
But he did say that autopsy results were pending. Investigators also said they would not release details on the condition of Bernstein's body or what may have occurred at the park.
"The rains helped move some of the dirt", he said.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said Woodward won't appear in court until Tuesday, adding that he was not ready to say what charges Woodward will face, the L.A. Times reported.
The prosecutor said that the entire incident was "very tragic" and that Bernstein "had a life in front of him that is now extinguished".

It was not immediately possible to reach Woodward in custody, where he listed his occupation as "Nerf games", according to the jail's website.
When the Sheriff's Department initially interview Woodward, he said that he dropped Bernstein off at the park and waited for an hour in the auto. "Woodward to Mr. Bernstein", Barnes said Friday.
The death of Bernstein rocked the tight-knit community of Lake Forest, 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles. He said that he waited in his vehicle while Blaze walked to the park, then waited for around an hour the victim to return, but he never did. That led them to fill out a missing person's report.
It's unclear whether the unnamed friend is Woodward. Upon arriving at the park, the friend allegedly told investigators that Bernstein left the auto and walked off.
The Register reported, based on an affidavit signed by police investigators, that the suspect was "visibly shaking" in one interview. Woodward apparently told police he drove Bernstein to the park but did not get out of the auto with him and left when he didn't return. The warrant, obtained by the Orange County Register, said that the friend had scratches and abrasions on his hands and dirty fingernails and that he said he could not recall the last name or address of a girlfriend he visited after dropping off Bernstein. He also had dirt under his fingernails and scratches on his hands, which he attributed to having participated in an outdoor fight club with some friends. He said it was from falling into a puddle. "I can't figure out why anybody would want to hurt my son".
