Body found by hikers near Interstate 70 in Summit County ruled a suicide

The body of a woman found by hikers near Interstate 70 mile marker 195 on the afternoon of July 1 has been identified by the Summit County Coroner and ruled a suicide.

The woman, whose name Coroner Regan Wood requested the Summit Daily withhold out of respect for the family, was a 61-year-old resident of Sheridan, Colorado. The cause of death was ruled a gunshot wound to the chest.

The woman was the third person to die of suicide in Summit County this year, along with a local resident and a second homeowner whose primary residence was on the Front Range, according to the coroner’s office.



In 2016, three of the 13 total suicides were not Summit County residents.
