A badly decomposed body was found Monday in a patch of brush alongside a North County creek.
The discovery off Crouch Street and Oceanside Boulevard was reported shortly after 7:30 a.m., according to Oceanside police.
“The body was in an advanced state of decay and appeared to have been in this location for an extended period of time,” Lt. Leonard Cosby said.
There was no evidence of criminal involvement in the unidentified person’s death, he said.
The county Medical Examiner’s Office took custody of the remains.
