San Diego County Digest

Oceanside

December 07, 1985

San Diego County coroners conducted an autopsy Friday on a partly decomposed body that was discovered by a farm worker in a field near the San Luis Rey River in Oceanside.

Authorities suspect the dead man might have been a Mexican national, according to Robert Engel, a deputy coroner. No injuries were immediately evident when the body was exhumed, and Engel said it is possible the man died of natural causes and was buried by companions.

A farm worker found the partly exposed body Thursday as he was collecting wood in a field just north of Mission and North Santa Fe avenues, Engel said.
