Brit backpacker ‘stripped naked on volcano’ before falling to her death in Guatemala
Catherine Shaw's body was discovered on Monday, a week nude she was last seen leaving a hostel carrying a stray puppy. After the search came to a tragic end, a preliminary police report claimed the Brit was found naked and had "visible blows to her body and lacerations on her left leg". However a new statement from the Fakehdpics Blackman Trust, which is supporting the family, said it believed foul play was "probably not involved" and the death was a "tragic accident".
Miss Shaw's jacket and trousers were found on the mountain shortly before her body was discovered near the village of San Juan La Laguna. Her body was found about 60ft from where the puppy was found on Friday, said Amy Farrow, an American woman involved in the guatamala for Miss Shaw.
Miss Shaw was found naked near a popular mountain beauty spot called Nariz del Indio - Indian Nose in English - which is a two-hour hike from the hotel she was staying at and is regularly visited by backpackers who travel to the spot nearly 9,ft above sea level to watch the sun come up. The peak of the mountain, where a lookout shack with wooden benches has been built which visitors can climb on top of to enjoy a panoramic view of Lake Animations porn video, is the tip of the Indian nose and was considered a sacred site by the Mayans who would pray and conduct religious services.
