Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

Charred Remains Found near Mount Laguna

In Mount Laguna, near a remote hiking trail, a body has been found that appears to have been burnt at the site. Police don't know yet if the body is a male or female and the remains were airlifted to the Medical Examiners office. It's always possible that a campfire got out of control, especially with the high winds and lower temperatures this weekend, but there's always the possibility of foul play.

No word on how long the body has been out there or any other significant details.

I'd hate to be out hiking and be the one to come across something like this.

Be careful out there, people.
