Suicide Victim Found At Inholder Residence

Mojave National Preserve

National Park News

On July 21st, a woman contacted the information desk at the Kelso Depot Visitor Center and said that she hadn’t heard for a while from her father, Michael Obert, who was staying at an inholder residence within the park. She asked that a ranger check on him, as he’d left a message for her the previous day saying that she should send help if he was not heard from by 8 a.m. on the 21st. Ranger Brian Cooperider and a San Bernardino County deputy sheriff drove to the residence near Cima and discovered Obert dead of a gunshot wound. He was lying face forward with a .22 caliber handgun underneath him and as single gunshot wound in his head. The county coroner was notified, as was his daughter.
