HACIENDA HEIGHTS (AP) — Authorities say they’ve found the body of a child along a Los Angeles hiking trail.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the child, believed to be 7 to 10 years old, was found Tuesday morning by workers landscaping a trail in Hacienda Heights southeast of Los Angeles.
County Supervisor Janice Hahn says the body appears to be that of a young girl.
Authorities say it appears the child died elsewhere and was pushed off a roadway embankment onto the Skyline Trail.
There’s no immediate word on the cause of death but homicide detectives are investigating.
