A man whose body was found near Grizzly Peak on University of California at Berkeley property Sunday afternoon has been identified by the Alameda County coroner’s bureau as 22-year-old Concord resident Lorenzo Baltazar-Trujillo.

At about 2:20 p.m. Sunday, a female hiker found Baltazar-Trujillo’s body at the base of a 100-foot cliff near a popular hiking spot, UC Berkeley police said.

The hiker tried to give first aid to the man but then realized he was deceased.

She notified police, who responded and did not find any signs of foul play.

UC Berkeley police were not immediately releasing more information about Baltazar-Trujillo’s death as of this morning.

An accident? Foul play? Way too young to die. RIP young man.

As the TV showed–climbing on the rock is extremly dangerous – he took a chance & fell- very preventable

Sorry for the loss of this young man. I work up in the hills and drive by this spot everyday. Unfortunately it seems to be a gathering place for the younger people and they almost always are smoking pot out there when I leave the office (rarely drinking). Dangerous place to be under the influence with all the rocks/cliffs/hillsides. Condolences to the family and friends.

“If he didnt trip or slip maybe someone pushed him.”

All acts do not end up in murder– stop watching TV so much,,,,,,
