SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An autopsy is scheduled Monday for a Camp Pendleton Marine who died over the weekend when she failed to surface during a dive off Mission Beach.

The body of 26-year-old Staci Jackson was found inside the Yukon, a sunken ship about a mile and a half off the coast.

Staci was diving with a group Saturday afternoon but never resurfaced.

Lifeguard officials say her death was accidental.

News 8 spoke with the diver who located her body. He says, she was entangled and that it did look "suspicious."
