Man Found Dead in Glacier National Park Identified
According to KRTV:
The man who was found dead early Friday morning in Glacier National Park has been identified.
The Glacier County Sheriff's Office has identified the man as 48-year-old Erik Belgarde of Browning.
A class of photography students reported they discovered Belgarde unresponsive around 6:30 a.m. at Two Medicine Campground in the park.
Park Spokesman Tim Rains says that area of the park was closed for about two hours but has since re-opened though the investigation is still ongoing.
"We're currently still investigating the cause, determining the cause of death and we're waiting for the results of the autopsy for that but it could be some time before we get those results," Rains said. "The Glacier County Sheriff's Office will be handling that. There is a lot of interagency jurisdiction in that area. What you do and what you don't do, but for us to close the investigation we want to determine the why."
No foul play is suspected.
