PCSO Criticized Over Handling of Search for Missing Superstition Mountain Hiker Chris Hensley
Tuesday, April 30, 2013 | 2 years ago
"Is daddy living in the mountains now?"
It's a heartbreaking question that 5-year-old Alexa has been asking her mom, Tonya Hensley.
It's been nearly two weeks since members of the Superstition Search and Rescue (SSAR) traced Chris Hensley's steps into the Superstition Mountains and located his remains in an area known as No Name Canyon.
"He"s in Heaven watching over you," Hensley says, trying to explain their father's absence to Alexa and 7-year-old Alyssa.
When they get older, she will tell them that he fell about 200 feet off the flat face of a massive rock, that he slammed against at least two rock ledges before landing on the ground. She'll tell them that death investigators say that his broken ribs punctured his left lung. Battered and likely near death in the unattended wilderness, he apparently managed to crawl partly under bushes before he died.
