The discovery of a body Friday morning near China Camp State Park has now evolved into a homicide investigation, the Marin County Sheriff's Office said.
The sheriff's office was notified around 8 a.m. Friday about the death in the area of Miwok Meadows at 1400 N. San Pedro Road, near the south edge of China Camp State Park.
