Body Of Hiker Found

Jackson, Wy – The body of a missing hiker has been found
in the Teton Wilderness just south of Yellowstone National Park.
Authorities confirmed the body was that of 24-year-old David
Anderson of Richardson, Texas.
Teton County Coroner Bob Campbell says the man died of
hypothermia.
Bridger-Teton National Forest officials said the remains were
discovered yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon -- two days after he
went missing.
Early reports of the man being mauled by a bear were confirmed,
but Campbell concluded the attack occurred after Anderson's death.
The man had been employed for a second summer with Signal
Mountain Lodge.
The body was found in a marshy area of Bailey Meadows, off the
Arizona Creek Trail.
