UofL Professor Found Dead On Hiking Trip

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE/KCWY) - A University of Louisville professor was found dead in Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains after a hiking excursion.

KCWY in Wyoming reports Carol Hanchette, 62, was found by Johnson County Sheriffs on Tuesday.

Authorities say she and a 67-year-old Richard Cornelius, of Billings, Montana, entered a wilderness area last Friday and made camp. While hiking Saturday, they separated when Cornelius decided to head back to camp on his own.

However, he became lost and never reached the camp. He eventually found his way out late Monday afternoon and met others who contacted authorities.

A search for Hunchette began Monday evening. Her cause of death was ruled hypothermia.

According to the Louisville's website, Hanchette was a professor of geoscience.
