(19 year old identified)….Timothy Evan Nodal was found dead recently near Campo.
He and a friend were attempting to walk the Pacific Crest Trail last week. The hike would have been from the US/Mexican border to Idyllwild. After the first day, the pair camped overnight in the mountains. The next day Nodal texted his stepfather in Julian that he was not feeling well. His stepfather called 911. A law enforcement helicopter located the 19 year old, and medical personnel were called in. He was found alive, but in distress. He later died at the scene, before he could be stabilized. The San Diego County Medical Examiner has scheduled an autopsy for this week to determine a cause of death.
