“The remains have been identified as David Legeno, a 50-year-old United Kingdom man. It appears that Legeno died of heat related issues, but the Inyo County Coroner will determine the final cause of death. There are no signs of foul play.”

Temperatures in the area can reach up to 120 degrees during the summer months.

Legeno, who is also a MMA fighter and boxer, lived in southern England with his daughter, who is in her 20s.
