And not far from here, we reached the watershed and were at a dead end. So we turned around and decided we’d find a place by the water to eat our lunch.
We went along a trail and back by the river a couple was eating lunch, and two young women were heading out of the cover. My husband FINALLY asked what I was wanting to know, “Do you know what’s going on with all the police and tape?”
The fellow in the eating lunch couple began to tell my husband that two people had fallen off the waterfall and they were looking for them.
This was when the two young women said, “One of them is our cousin.”
A couple on a first date, Kimberly Evans and Joesph Clark went hiking. At the top of the waterfall, it narrows, and Joseph jumped across, landing safely. Kimberly followed, but slipped, Joseph tried to grab her, and both went down the waterfall. Witnesses retrieved Joseph, and medical personnel treated him on the scene and then transported him a nearby hospital, with head and hip injuries. Kimberly, the woman who fell from Bell’s Canyon Waterfall, has not been found and is presumed dead.
I wish the Evans family peace. Godspeed to Kimberly Evans. May Joseph Clark’s memory of that moment fade away and may he be blessed with new beginnings.
