A body may have been discovered in an area of canyons, crevices and caves in East County where a UCSD psychology student disappeared nearly a month ago, sheriff's deputies said Sunday.http://poway.patch.com/articles/body-found-in-anza-borrego-believed-to-be-missing-hiker
Pino's brother-in-law found the remains of the UC San Diego psychology major by lowering a video camera, loaned to the family by a private investigator, into one of the crevasses that run through dried-mud slopes and precipices in the desolate area.
Due to a high danger of cave-ins, it took mine-rescue experts several days to safely remove the body from the roughly 60-foot-deep hole, according to sheriff's officials.
An autopsy determined that Pino succumbed to asphyxiation due to the position he wound up in at the bottom of the fissure, according to the medical examiner. The time of his death was unclear.http://www.cbs8.com/story/18338254/medical-examiner-missing-hiker-suffocated-to-death-inside-mud-cave
