Randy Udall, the brother of Colorado senator Mark Udall who was missing since last week, was found dead in Wyoming’s Wind River Range late Wednesday night. Rescuers had been looking for Udall since he failed to return from a solo hike on June 28th. Udall was reportedly heading for the scenic Titcomb Basin when he died.
A statement has been released by the senator’s office stating that while an autopsy has yet to be conducted, it appears Randy Udall died of natural causes. “Randy left this earth doing what he loved most: hiking in his most favorite mountain range in the world,” the statement said.
Udall was an active environmentalist and clean energy advocate. He also helped found the nonprofit, Community Office for Resource Energy Efficiency.
