The embalmed body of Kathleen Namphy, an American hiker who lost her life while descending Iran's tallest mountain, today would be sent to her homeland, a source told Iranian Cultural Heritage News Agency on Monday.
Namphy, a cancer survivor and honored Stanford lecturer, fell to death in late August as she was triumphantly returning from the 5671-meter tall mountain. While regretting the sad occasion, Iranian authorities have found no grounds for criminal investigation.
An informed source in Tehran's forensic center told CHN that the autopsy studies have come to an end, raising no suspicion in the circumstances leading to the fatal fall. The honored 69-year-old lecturer's body is embalmed due to the long-distance return route.
