  • Case History

    A mountain climber found the victim's skeletal remains in the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness near Clarkdale. There was no identification found with the body, nor was any backpacking equipment was ever located.

    The trail where the woman was found is ten miles from Clarkdale. No vehicle was located near the beginning of the trail. Police say the area is popular with hikers and follows a creek at the bottom of a canyon. The trail itself is an easy hike, but the general nature of the canyon, off the trail, is extremely rugged. The victim's body was found near the top of a knife-edged ridge, several hundred yards up from the trail. This portion of the canyon is natural wilderness and is difficult terrain for the average hiker, let alone a woman who is nine months pregnant.
