An unidentified person’s body was discovered in a riverbed near Old Town San Diego State Historic Park Wednesday, officials confirmed.
According to the San Diego Police Department, the body – which appears to be that of a transient – was found in the 4700-block of Pacific Highway, right near an EZ-8 Motel.
As of 11 a.m., authorities were attempting to recover the body from the riverbed, but access proved a bit difficult.
Officials from the coroner’s office were also called to the scene. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office will determine the identity of the deceased person and the cause of death at a later time.
