James Youngblom Found Dead In Yosemite

James Youngblom had been hiking alone from White Wolf up the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River to the Glen Aulin trailhead between June 22cd to June 25th. Youngbloms death is strange. His body was found at the bottom of LeConte Falls. One might assume he slipped and fell but investigators state they do not know how he died as an autopsy had not been carried out. If he had fallen, it would be obvious from the damage to his body.
