Park Rangers recover body from river
Williams-Grand Canyon News


GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - At approximately 4:30 p.m. on 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. Because of pending darkness, rangers were not able to fly to the scene until the following morning.

At approximately 9 a.m. on March 22, rangers flew to the scene to begin their investigations and prepare the body for transport. Authorities transported the body to the rim by helicopter at approximately 11:30 a.m. and then transferred it to the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

Authorities are withholding the woman's name pending positive identification and notification of next of kin. No additional information is available at this time.

The National Park Service, in collaboration with the Coconino County Medical Examiner's office, is conducting an investigation into the incident.
