OCEANSIDE, Calif. -- A badly decomposed body was found in a riverbed near Capistrano Park Saturday, police said.

The discovery came just hours after the body of a nude woman was found floating in the water near Fiesta Island.

A pedestrian in the park saw the body of a man and reported it to police at 12:20 p.m. Saturday, according to Tom Bussey, public information officer for the Oceanside Police Department.

Police, fire department personnel and lifeguards converged on the scene and the body was pulled from the San Luis Rey riverbed. A homicide investigator arrived later. The San Diego County coroner's office will attempt to identify the body and determine a cause of death, Bussey said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Oceanside Police Department at 760-435-4900.
