Early on the afternoon of November 5th, rangers were notified by a grandfather and his granddaughter that theyâd come upon a âdead bodyâ in the park. They reported that theyâd found the manâs body leaning against a tree and that his body was âcold, blue and heavy.â Ranger Chuck Huston and chief ranger Norman Nelson responded. The body was found southeast of the C parking lot connector and the South Valley trail. The victim was leaning against a tree about 30 feet off the trail. They confirmed that he was dead and determined that there was no outward sign of trauma. Prince William County fire and rescue personnel arrived shortly thereafter and confirmed that no additional measures to revive him needed to be taken. A joint investigation with the county is underway. The victim had a long history of suicide attempts. Rangers found his identification with him, along with a note with directions to the commuter lot outside the park where his car could be found.
