Suicide Victim Found At Park Overlook

Canyon De Chelly National Monument

National Park News

On the morning of July 19th, a concerned family member contacted the park and asked that rangers check on a 57-year-old man from Louisiana who was travelling alone and had called home the previous evening from the park’s Massacre Cave overlook. Ranger Fernando Jones checked the area and discovered the man’s body on the rim of the canyon approximately 15 yards from his vehicle in the Massacre Cave overlook parking lot. He died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. NPS, Navajo Police, and the Apache County Sheriff's office conducted the on-scene investigation.
