THOUSAND PALMS - The Riverside County Coroner has confirmed that the body of a hiker found Sunday morning was that of a 71-year-old college professor.
The body of Alan Hogenauer was found Sunday morning in a wash in Thousand Palms Canyon. He apparently died of exposure in the 120-degree heat.
Hogenauer was hiking along with his wife and son Saturday, when the wife and son turned back to avoid the heat; leaving Hogenauer to continue on his own.
An autopsy is pending.
