Body found along Blue Ridge Parkway

The Waynesboro News Virginian has reported that a body was found along the Blue Ridge Parkway last Saturday:
District Park Ranger Kurt Spears on Thursday said a Richmond medical examiner declared that a man found Saturday on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Rockfish Valley overlook died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
It is a trend that not uncommon to the National Parks, as I have written about previously. There have been a number of suicides over the years along the Blue Ridge Parkway, most notably around the Afton Mountain area.
