Hikers Found Embracing in S. California National Park Died of Gunshot Wounds”

It was recently reported that the bodies of 22-year-old Joseph Orbeso and 20-year-old Rachel Nguyen had been discovered in a remote area of #Joshua Tree #National Park. At the time of the discovery of the #missing hikers, the cause of death was not given by authorities, due to the condition of the bodies and the need for an autopsy. Officials are still investigating Orbeso's actions in the murder-suicide.

A small team found the bodies Sunday in a steep canyon.

Investigators said they now believe Orbeso shot Nguyen before shooting himself, based on evidence found at the scene.

Authorities found their vehicle near a trailhead that day and began searching for the couple, at first pulling in 250 search and rescue members and resources including "aircraft, dog teams, horse teams, and [a] ground team", who combined spent more than 2,100 hours looking for the couple.

Searchers found their auto at the head of the Maze Loop trail in the park but few other clues. Authorities identified the bodies as Orbeso and Nguyen between Wednesday and Thursday. Gilbert Orbeso had continued searching for the couple on weekends, aided by friends and volunteers, after the official search was called off.

The two bodies were found embracing each other.

Orbeso's dad already said that he felt a "good feeling" after the couple was found.

The pair had been initially reported missing on July 28 when deputies from the Morongo Basin Sheriff's Station were contacted by the owner of a local bed and breakfast who told deputies that he believed his guests - Nguyen and Orbeso - went hiking in the park that morning but never returned to check out, the statement said.

His son had dated Nguyen in the past and had stayed friends with her.
