    Washington Teen Found Dead in Arizona National Park

    According to The Herald Sun, park rangers discovered the body of a 19-year-old woman in AZ’s Saguaro National Park last week. Officials found the Washington teen’s body near a campsite in Grass Shack Campground.

    The news outlet further stated that reaching the remote campsite requires uphill backpacking. Additionally, the grounds, which host a minimal three campsites within the Rincon Mountains, lie 10 miles from the nearest trailhead. Therefore, hiking alone to one of the campsites could potentially prove dangerous should something go wrong.

    Since authorities discovered the young woman’s remains, the campground was shut down. Currently, investigations surrounding the woman’s death continue, however, investigators have not announced a cause of death or the woman’s identity. Of the fatality, Chief Ranger Kelsey Cassidy said, “At this point in the investigation the death appears to be an accident.”

    Regardless, she shared that officials continue to work to find answers surrounding the woman’s death. However, at this point, several factors could have led to the fatality. According to the news outlet, visitors to the 100,000-acre Saguaro Wilderness Area should bring at least a gallon of water. The national park service also shared that weather in the park changes rapidly without warning, creating several potential hazards.
