Sad story. Only other experience I can relate to is when in BOI, a UA F/A was murdered while walking along the Boise River. Was finally solved some time later in relation with another death by same person.
I sure hope it was not a senseless occurrence that caused this.
Thoughts with his family in Tri Cities area.

There was also an ORD sUA based FA who was raped and murdered in apartment in Chicago. Her roomate, and co-worker heard her screams, and discovered her. The story was on AMW a couple months back.

Very sad for his family and the Alaska family. Such a mystery.... his body was found two miles from the layover hotel with no apparent wounds or injuries. His wallet was still in his pocket so it wasn't a robbery. Lee was a big, strong guy. Hope the local police are able to solve this.

This was very tragic to hear about.   I really hope that this reminds crews of the importance of being vigilant and careful on their overnights. It is so very important to be mindful of your surroundings. This is a terrible loss, our thoughts are with his family.

Local news said today that there was no trauma marks on the body.. Stay tuned for more news as it transpires. There could be more to this than meets the eye, although very sad news indeed.
