Death At Park Recreation Field Deemed Probable Suicide

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park

National Park News

Rangers received a report of a woman down late on the afternoon of November 2nd. A family at the park’s designated recreation field saw a woman kneeling on a blanket on a neighboring recreation field. She was hunched forward, with her head on the ground, and they therefore thought that she was praying. After some time, they noted that she hadn’t moved, walked over to her, and found that she was dead. Responding with rangers were Walker County deputies and the county medical examiner, who declared the 26-year-old woman dead at the scene. Four bottles of prescription medicines were found with her along with notes to family members. She was identified at the scene and the family was notified the same day. Preliminary investigation indicates that her death was a suicide.
