The death of a Massachusetts woman who died while hiking in Arizona in July has been ruled accidental by authorities.
A death certificate for 31-year-old Angela Tramonte of Saugus shows the Maricopa County Office of the Medical Examiner ruled her death an accident.
The primary cause of Tramonte’s death is listed as environmental heat exposure, according to the death certificate.
Tramonte died while hiking in Phoenix, Arizona. She had gone to Camelback Mountain to hike with a man she met on Instagram a couple of months prior. The hike began around 10am.
In aGoFundMethat has raised more than $67,000 for Tramonte, friends questioned what happened noting Tramonte was fit and always stayed hydrated.
The GoFundMe page said:
“She recently took a trip to Arizona to meet a man she was talking to online for two months. They supposedly went for a hike at Camelback Mountain on Friday, July 30th. Halfway up the mountain, Angela told this man, who is a police officer and first responder, that she was exhausted and couldn’t continue. She supposedly walked back down the mountain ALONE to the car while this man continued on by himself,” the post in the fundraiser said. “He clearly has no regard for her safety.”
