Grand Canyon Rangers Recover Body from Colorado River

Grand Canyon, Ariz. – At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, the Grand Canyon Regional Communications Center received a satellite phone report from a private river trip that a woman’s body had been found at river mile 165, which is located near Tuckup Canyon. Due to pending darkness, rangers were unable to fly to the scene until the following morning.

At approximately 9 a.m. on Friday, March 22, rangers were flown to the scene to begin their investigations and prepare the body for transport. The body was transported to the rim by helicopter at approximately 11:30 a.m. and was transferred to the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

The woman’s name is being withheld pending positive identification and notification of next of kin. No additional information is available at this time. An investigation into the incident is being conducted by the National Park Service in collaboration with the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s office.

That sucks but hopefully will bring some closure.

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
