From earlier this year.... let's try an alternate beginning shall we?
They say if you stand close enough to the canyons edge you can hear her singing Caribbean Blue from the '92 Grammy Award winning album Shepherd Moons by Enya. Such a beautiful song that captured an endless imagination into the depths of time, yet it was coupled with such a tragic sad ending of this unknown individual.
I wasn't just intrigued by this myth, this superstition, that the young girl who committed suicide by driving her 2001 Dodge Neon over the Grand Canyon right in this very spot was still haunting this place, dancing around in her lovely red evening gown adorned with shining crystal studs at the top and a glistening pendant on the left side with matching red shoes like silk. No I wanted to know more about her. About her life before she decided to end it so young.
Why she did such a thing, her middle-aged toy dog in tow, why that particular evening, if there was any significance to April 10th or the random words written on a singular piece of paper found under a rock near the scene. The investigators who found it claimed it only said "I'll be waiting for you dear." They were not sure she wrote it they were only assuming since it was so close to the scene of the "accident".
I was not the type of reporter who chased ghost stories, but when I saw the picture of this girl on the local news something told me this was no ordinary suicide. After all who travels over 2000 miles from home in an unreliable vehicle just to die? No I was going to do some investigating on my own to figure out this mystery and I knew just the person to help me in these endeavor. Tommy Westingfield, an old classmate of mine who was particularly gifted in finding information beneath the 'official' records if you know what I mean.
