Dead body found on cliff below gliderport identified

Authorities released the name on Tuesday of an 18-year-old San Diego State University student found dead on a sea bluff near the Torrey Pines Gliderport.

A beachgoer came across the body of San Mateo County resident Sandy Khoo in an area known as “Hully Gully” shortly after noon on Sunday, according to the county Medical Examiner’s Office.

The young woman appeared to have fallen off a trail or ledge on the cliff, and a flashlight was found near where she came to rest, a lifeguard spokesman said. An emergency-services helicopter crew retrieved Khoo’s body from the precipice.

An autopsy determined that she died of blunt-force injuries.
