Hikers in the Angeles National Forest made a grim discovery Sunday afternoon as they trekked the lower trail on Lake Avenue north of Alta Loma Drive, reports the Pasadena Star-News, when they found human skeletal remains. The bones "appeared to have been there for several months," says Sgt. Angela Shepherd of the Crescenta Valley sheriff's station. Today LASD homicide detectives are investigating the scene, and will work with other authorities, to determine the body's identity and cause of death.
