I personally worked with Margaret over the summer. Although I only knew her for a short-time, she was always a pleasure to work with. My condolences to her family. I hope they find the son of a bitch.

I didn't see that it mentioned how he died. Does anyone know if it was suicide, exposure or he was shot by law enforcement?

This is just so completely senseless; nothing gained, nothing fought for, nothing achieved, only a waste of potential for the one and the shattering of a young family for the other. Let us know if her family needs anything, Shane.

There is some chatter over at CC.com about creating a memorial fund for her two kids as well as possibly a memorial climb. All great ideas.

I will write a check for $50 as soon as the details for making the donation are presented. My heart goes out to her family.

I did not know her family, I worked with her a few times on search and rescue operations. She also helped me look into an accelerated EMT course at Ft. Lewis. I only knew her for a short-time but she was always nice and extremely helpful. In otherwords: a good person; something you don't find all that common these days. I just wish they would have caught the fucking bastard alive so he would have to live with what he's done to her family.
