Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the death of a photographer who was hit by a falling tree branch in an Ohio state park last month.
Victoria Schafer, 44, of Chillicothe, Ohio, was taking pictures for several high school seniors at Hocking Hill State Park on Sept. 2 when she was struck and killed by a falling section of a tree. She is survived by her husband and four children.
Detectives from the Hocking County Sheriff's Office assisted the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to investigate Schafer's death. The investigators found evidence suggesting the falling branch was not a natural occurrence, according to press releases from the Hocking County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
