The remains were found Wednesday in the middle of the park not far from “Bee Rock,” according to Los Angeles Fire Department’s Erik Scott.

While circumstances surrounding the death remained unclear, coroner’s officials said it did not appear to be suspicious.

The person’s name had not been released, pending notification of next of kin.

Bee Rock is a hiking-trail destination that is above the old L.A. Zoo off Crystal Springs Drive.

The area is in rugged terrain within a canyon that is difficult to reach, Scott said.
