An AT story

The shocking 1981 murder of two campers on the Appalachian Trail in Virginia was mentioned in Bill Bryson's book, A Walk in the Woods, and elsewhere.

This spring, those who knew the story were shocked to hear that the man who committed those murders had been out of prison for over ten years, and had tried it again, near the same spot on the Trail.

A great telling of the whole story, from the Washington Post: Blood on the Mountain.
