Montana Man Found Dead In Yellowstone
The body of a Montana man was discovered this past weekend along a ski trail in Yellowstone National Park, according to a news release from the park on Monday.
Merik Morgan, 52, from Belgrade, Mont., was found by snowshoers about noon Saturday.
They saw what looked like a frozen human body in the snow along the groomed ski trail along Blacktail Plateau Drive in the northern part of the park.
The snowshoers called 911, and park rangers responded to the Frog Rock Trailhead, which is south of the Grand Loop Road, and 8.5 miles east of Mammoth Hot Springs.
While initial indications are that the man succumbed to hypothermia, the incident remains under investigation, according to the news release.
