MILL VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Marin County sheriff's officials say two hikers whose bodies were found five days apart on Mt. Tamalpais died accidentally.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1uCN8wk) that coroner's investigators determined that even though the two women were discovered in the same area of Marin County within days of each other, the deaths are not connected.
Sheriff's Lt. Keith Boyd, the assistant coroner, says 33-year-old Magdalena Glinkowski, whose body was found on April 12, died from hypothermia.
Boyd says 50-year-old Marie Sanner, who was found April 17, died from blunt injuries to the head that were most likely sustained in a fall linked to darkness and the presence of alcohol in her bloodstream.
Boyd says Glinkowski was unfamiliar with the area and unprepared for a prolonged hike.
Sanner reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .12.
