Two women and a boy died in a remote area of Colorado, after going into the woods to “escape the civilized world”, despite the family’s disapproval.
Michael Barnes, coroner for Gunnison County, Colorado, USA, on July 26, said three bodies were found in and around the tent near the campground in the Gunnison National Forest.
The three victims include sisters Christine Vance, 41, and Rebecca Vance, 42, and Rebecca’s 14-year-old son. Trevala Jara, a family member, said they had been living in the forest since last summer to escape the civilized world, although the Vance sisters have no survival experience and only watch YouTube videos on the subject.
“We tried to dissuade them, but they wouldn’t listen,” Jara said.
