SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man walking his dog through Tecolote Canyon found the body of an apparent homicide victim Wednesday.

The pedestrian came across the corpse on a path off the 6300 block of Osler Street in Linda Vista shortly after 8 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The body, that of a black man who appeared to have been in his late teens or early 20s, bore signs of "trauma consistent with an assault," SDPD Lt. Kevin Rooney said.

The dead man remained unidentified as of mid-afternoon, the lieutenant said. An autopsy was pending.
