Authorities are still trying to determine how Gail Dews’ body ended up at the bottom of a gorge in Pennsylvania last week.
Police found Dews’ body Monday, March 11, at the base of a 92-foot gorge in Shohola Falls, Pa. at about 9 a.m.
“We’re still trying to get a complete picture of what happened,” said Trooper Connie Devens, a public information officer with the Pennsylvania State Police.
Police said Dews’ husband Stephen reported her missing shortly before her body was found. Authorities have labeled Dews’ death “suspicious.”
“We still don't have a complete picture of what happened,” Devens said. “We’re trying to find out how they ended up in Pennsylvania.”
Devens declined further comment.
An autopsy conducted on Dews’ body last week revealed the 56-year-old woman died of multiple blunt force traumas, Kevin Stroyan, Pike County coroner said.
Anyone who may have information relevant to the investigation should contact the Pennsylvania State Police in Blooming Grove at 570-226-5718.
