SUPERSTITION MOUNTAINS, Ariz.- Pinal County detectives are investigating the death of a woman,who fell to her death while hiking with her husband in the Superstition Mountains.
Detectives say they got a call around 11am, May 2, from a man who said his wife had died after falling off a cliff along Massacre Trail.
Several law enforcement and rescue organizations responded.
After walking in about 4 miles on the trail, they found the body of 65-year-old Mona Mae Baker, who was from Hansville, Washington.
Investigators say her husband, 68-year-old Michael Baker, told them that he wasn't standing with his wife when she fell and that he only saw the final seconds as she went over the edge.
Authorities also say Baker told them that both he and his wife were experienced hikers who had hiked Massacre Trail two previous times this year.
He said he and his wife would spent their winters traveling in their travel trailer around the the Apache Junction/Gold Canyon area each year.
