Remains of Tennesse walker found

Ok so this is not a new story, but sad all the same: https://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/31700 ... l-message/

The story states the woman's remains were found in a bag - she must've wrapped herself up pretty well when she knew death was imminent, otherwise the remains would normally have been disturbed/scattered by animals.

A slow and horrible death by starvation, it would seem.

Ta, Yes, I followed this one as well, tragic and insightful. I saw it linked on another site, many people were looking to blame or getting upset with the reference to her being 'experienced'.

Can happen so easily, could head up S&R and still make such a rudimentary mistake. Scale dangerous cliffs, survive incredible hardships, and eg. end up looking for tent in the dark, shivering in underpants.

You've misread the article. She didn't leave herself in a bag but some belongings that she wanted posted to her family.
