Christine Vance and Rebecca Vance Wiki – Biography
Christine Vance, 41, Rebecca Vance, 42, and Rebecca’s 14-year-old son were identified as the bodies discovered earlier this month about 1,000 feet from a site near Gold Creek Campground, according to the Colorado Sun. The trio are believed to have started walking in July 2022, about a year before they were discovered dead. A family member told the coroner that they had been planning to “live off the grid.” Gunnison County Coroner Michael Barnes told the Sun that malnutrition and “exposure to the elements” likely contributed to their deaths.

Causes of Death Still a Mystery
“It was a significantly harsh winter for us this year, and it always is here,” Barnes told the newspaper, “but we had more snow than the last two winters.” One of the bodies was located by a hiker on Sunday, while authorities found two others on Monday, Gunnison County Sheriff Adam Murdie said. Two of the bodies were found inside a small, zipped-up tent, while the other was outside at the camp. The bodies were found in a remote, wooded area, far from the areas frequented by hikers. “This is not typical anywhere, by any means,” Murdie said. What do you think? Be the first to comment.The bodies were “fairly mummified,” meaning they were probably there over the winter, possibly as late as last fall, Murdie said. Authorities also discovered personal belongings, tarps and a log shed over a campfire near the camp.
