Investigation Continues into Dead Body Found on Palm Springs Trail

City News Service

A body was discovered on a Palm Springs trail, and police Friday said it appeared a man was hiking when he suffered a heat- related medical emergency.

Police officers were sent to the North Lykken Trailhead, in the 700 block of La Mirada Road on a report that a body had been discovered, according to the Palm Springs Police Department.

The man’s name and other identifying information were not immediately provided. It was not immediately clear when he died.

Detectives on Friday were continuing to probe the death, saying foul play is not suspected, but that he apparently died after being exposed to extreme heat.
