Death of woman after Phoenix mountain hike ruled accidental

PHOENIX (AP) – The death of a Massachusetts woman hiking a Phoenix Mountain in July classified as an accident by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s office. The death was caused by “environmental heat exposure.” Tramonte, who was from the Boston area, first visited a man in Arizona after allegedly meeting online. Authorities said the two hiked the Echo Canyon Trail on Camelback Mountain around 1 p.m. on a hot day and neither reportedly had any water with them. Phoenix Fire Department officials said the woman was overheating halfway through her friends on social media as Tramonte headed back down the mountain. At around 4:40 p.m., firefighters found her unconscious near a house on the mountainside. Tramonte was pronounced dead at the scene and Phoenix police said foul play was not suspected.
