Two hikers discovered the body of a man described by Laguna Beach police as a member of the local homeless population on a Laguna Coast Wilderness Park trail early Thursday, June 26.
The cause of death has not been established and is pending an autopsy by the Orange County Coroner’s Office, said Capt. Jason Kravetz. Detectives are continuing their investigation and will release additional information once the autopsy has been completed and the next of kin notified, he said.
The victim, 44, who was not further identified, was discovered on the Willow Canyon Trail, he said.
