TMZ reports a pair of hikers found Legeno’s body in a very remote area, and the body had to be flown out by helicopter.
Local law enforcement told TMZ that Legeno appears to have died from heat-related issues and may have been dead for three or four days before he was discovered. The temperatures in Death Valley can reach 120 degrees.
