A charred body was found after a passing bicyclist summoned authorities this morning to Discovery Park.
The bicyclist initially thought the smoke he was seeing near the archery range off the Garden Highway was simply burning leaves.
He contacted authorities to put out the fire. Sacramento firefighters arrived and discovered the badly burned body, according to Officer Laura Peck, Sacramento Police spokeswoman. Police were called at about 6:30 a.m. to investigate.
The body could possibly be that of a woman, according to Peck.
