Mount Rainier National Park to Reopen Saturday

SEATTLE (AP) — Mount Rainier National Park in Washington will reopen to the public on Saturday, January 7, and all services with the exception of snow play will be available this weekend.

The park has been closed since ranger Margaret Anderson was shot to death on New Year’s Day trying to stop a car that failed to pull over at a checkpoint requiring drivers to put chains on their vehicles.

A memorial service is being planned for  the 34-year-old mother of two who was married to another park ranger.

Authorities say she was killed by Benjamin Colton Barnes, a 24-year-old Iraq war veteran. Investigators found his body face down in a snowy creek Monday with a handgun and rifle nearby. An autopsy Tuesday showed he had hypothermia and drowned.
