    A scorched body was found along a hiking trail near Mount Laguna.

    A group of hikers discovered the body not far from where Old Highway 80 meets Sunrise Highway around 11:25 a.m. Sunday.

    Dectectives had to hike and off-road for more than a mile to get to the location, according to Lt. Dennis Brugos with the San Diego County Sheriff's department.

    Homicide detectives are investigating, but it is not yet known if foul play is suspected, Brugos said.

    "What they found was a body that was severely burned so badly that we can't even tell if the victim is female or male," he said.

    The body had to be airlifted via helicopter to the Medical Examiner because it was located in such a remote area.

    Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the sheriff's department.
