Update: Tucker Death Investigation Involved
The investigation into the death of a toddler from a gunshot wound at Yellowstone National Park moved into today with no word on which direction it was taking, National Parks Traveler reported.
Al Nash, the park’s spokesman, said Thursday he had no updates into the death last Saturday of Ella Marie Tucker, a 3-year-old from Pocatello, Idaho. He did say that he was told it was “an involved investigation and it was going to take some time.”
Tucker died Saturday (Sept. 7) from a self-inflicted gunshot she suffered while camping in Yellowstone National Park. The weapon was a pistol belonging to her father.
