Cyclist Finds Dead Body While Riding Through Sunnyvale Park

SUNNYVALE (CBS SF) -- A bicyclist riding through Baylands Park discovered a dead body there Tuesday, prompting a police investigation.

The bicyclist discovered the corpse in a soft mud embankment along a small creek, just south of the Sunnyvale Materials Recovery and Transfer Station trail, authorities said. The body was slightly submerged in the creek but there were no signs of human activity in the mud surrounding the corpse.
