Asheville Man Jumps To Death From Parkway Bridge

Blue Ridge Parkway

National Park News

Rangers, Buncombe County officers and North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers were notified of a body lying along the side of I-26 below the parkway on the evening of September 27th.  They found that a 45-year-old Asheville man had jumped from the parkway bridge to the road below. His vehicle was located near the bridge with several notes indicating mental distress and depression. Notification was made to his wife, who reported that he had been suffering from depression, that he’d been undergoing treatment for several years, and that he had contemplated suicide and attempted it several years previously.
