The body of a man, the victim of a self inflicted gunshot wound, was found on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Rockfish Valley Overlook in Virginia. The Overlook is located at mile post 1 and close to Interstate 64 and the cities of Waynesboro, Staunton, and Charlottesville.
This is not the first time a tragic life has ended at this overlook. During my career I worked in this area for 25 years and investigated several other such incidents including one murder suicide involving a recently divorced couple. The husband had picked the wife up at her parents' home in Waynesboro leading them to believe they were going to a restaurant to work out a financial matter. Instead he took her to the Rockfish Valley Overlook shot her and then shot himself.
