Body Identified After Being Found In Southern California Cave

CRESTLINE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified a body that was discovered buried in a Southern California cave after someone saw a hand sticking out of the ground.

San Bernardino County coroner’s investigators say she’s 32-year-old Jessica Widner of Lake Arrowhead.

The woman’s body was discovered Thursday night in a cave in Crestline, a community in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles.

A woman contacted authorities to save she had seen a human hand sticking out of the ground near a glass bottle dump.

Sheriff’s deputies found a small cave dug into a hillside and the body was inside the cave. Authorities say it appears part of the cave may have collapsed and buried the woman.

Her body was recovered Friday.
