Two male bodies found in the Cleveland National Forest are expected to be retrieved Monday.
One body was spotted along the Pacific Coast Trail near Mount Laguna by a Boy Scout troop hiking through the forest Saturday morning. A second body was found 5 miles away later that day.
Fog and low temperatures postponed the recovery of the bodies on Saturday. Investigators were unable to bring the bodies back down Sunday because it would have required extended hiking, but they placed both into body bags, San Diego County sheriff's officials said.
The body found by the Boy Scout troop had its chest cavity hollowed out, possibly ravaged by a wild animal, according to investigators.
Autopsies will be performed to determine the causes of death. It was unclear if any identification was found on either body, officials said.
