I heard it involved a male hiker, coming down from the peak who suffered a heart attack.
Happy Trails!

I hiked from Snow Creek Village to the peak, and down to the tram on the 11th. I came across the body on the descent between Round Valley and Long Valley. It was around 7:45pm and State Park Rangers were on scene waiting for the Riverside County Coroner to arrive. The deceased did pass from a heart attack, was reportedly 54 years old and overweight. It appears he is somewhat younger at 46 according to the coroner's report. His hiking buddy was also there, being wrapped in a thermal blanket to stay warm.

Sudden death of a still young man reminds us all of the unpredictability of life. He finished his life in a grand way, on a mountain in a forest.
