LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say two men found a man’s body Wednesday while hiking in a remote area of Griffith Park.

LAPD Det. Ubaldo Zesati told CBS2’s Serene Branson that the victim appeared to have been there for three to five days. Zesati said the man may have fallen while hiking and that his death did not appear to be the result of foul play or suicide.

Police are continuing their investigation and are attempting to identify the victim.

LAPD detectives arrived on the scene, in the 4700 block of Crystal Springs Drive, about 3 p.m., Officer Sally Madera said.

A park ranger called just before 1 p.m. saying two hikers spotted a body on a hillside, she said.
