Two bodies found in seashore

Hikers on Sky Trail in the Point Reyes National Seashore on Tuesday morning discovered two dead bodies, one of which has been identified as Thomas Fletcher, a 62-year-old from Petaluma. The park service has not yet released further details, but the sheriff’s log from Tuesday shows that at 9:33 a.m. someone who had spent the night at Sky Camp reported seeing two people—a man and a woman—who appeared to be dead. Both were gray-haired and older, and the man had a gun. The hiker had seen the pair before dusk the previous evening. On Tuesday afternoon, Michael Pollan’s book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” lay in the center of Limantour Road as park ranger and sheriff’s vehicles sat unattended.
