Apparent Suicide From Sunset Rock At Lookout Mountain At Chattanooga Tennessee

A woman fell 90 feet from Sunset Rock at Lookout Mountain near Chattanooga, Tennessee last Tuesday. She has been identified as Sarah Hunt of Chattanooga.

Ms. Hunt was a native of Great Lakes, Ill., and was a graduate of Hixson High School and UTC with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design, writes The Chattanoogan.

Park Rangers were able to make contact with Hunt’s family on Wednesday evening.

The family told investigators that Hunt had previously been treated for a mental illness and that a suicide note was found at the home, according to Todd Roeder, chief ranger at Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.  Sunset Rock belongs to that system of parks.

“The investigation is now finished,” Roeder said, according to “The medical examiner did not find any signs of foul play and her injuries seem to be the result of a fall of that kind.”

Hunt’s body was found on a trail at the bottom of Sunset Rock by two hikers, writes

They attempted CPR and called 911 around 5:15 p.m., writes When emergency personnel arrived on scene they determined that Hunt was dead.
