Rangers identify woman whose body was recovered from below South Rim of Grand Canyon
Williams-Grand Canyon News


GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - A woman whose body was recovered April 27 from below Trail View Overlook on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park has been identified as 67-year-old Elizabeth Miller of Phoenix.

Rangers began looking for Miller April 26 when they received an early morning report from the Phoenix Police Department that she was believed to be suicidal and on her way to Grand Canyon National Park.

After receiving a report from a park shuttle bus driver that a woman fitting Miller's description had exited the Hermit Shuttle at the Trail View Overlook (located about 0.75 miles west of Grand Canyon Village) and finding the woman's vehicle at Bright Angel Lodge near the primary pick up point for the Hermit Shuttle, rangers narrowed their search to the area immediately west of Grand Canyon Village.

At approximately 10:45 a.m. the park helicopter joined the search and about 15 minutes later the crew reported spotting a body approximately 100 feet below the Trail View Overlook. Recovery of the body was delayed until Friday due to poor weather conditions.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing and is being conducted by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner.
