Security Guard Discovers Body in Balboa Park Canyon

A security guard patrolling Balboa Park found a body in a canyon early Friday, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) confirmed. 

The body was found at about 1 a.m. near the intersection of Florida Drive and Zoo Place in the heart of Balboa Park.

SDPD said terrain made the body inaccessible and crews would need to wait until daylight to be able to gain access. Once the sun rose, officers made their way down a hill to reach the body. 

By about 8 a.m., a medical examiner had determined the death was not suspicious and SDPD began to clear the area. 

The medical examiner did not identify the person or release details about how he may have died.
