Dave Brown: Missing skydiving instructor from Utah FOUND

Upate: The body of David Roy Brown has been recovered.

A hiker came across David’s body in Kane Creek Canyon on Sunday.

Although there was a intensive search for David in the days following his disappearance, he was never found.  The location where he was found was rugged terrain and could have been easily missed by the searchers.

Dave fell nearly 300 feet from Utah’s Moab Rim.  His death was ruled a suicide.

 Brown was going through a divorce, had financial problems and shut down his own skydiving business.  He move to live in a trailer on the property of the owner of Skydive Moab.

“There’s no bullet, no knife scrape. He went off a ledge for 290 feet,” the police chief said. “Whether he jumped or fell off the edge, I don’t know.”

I believe that he probably fell, and to rule it a suicide, just because of his previous difficulties he was going through is not fair.  Plus, if you don’t know for sure, why hurt Dave’s family with such an assumption.  I doubt that Dave, who was a world record-holding national champion skydiver, would just give up and commit suicide.

  1. I have a hunch…the fellow who's property Mr Brown's RV was on – that fellow knows what happened to the 'missing skydiver'. In fact I believe he had something to do with the disappearance. I hope that McClint fellow is being checked out – as well as his property -with cadaver dogs.

  2. This is Clint…..Yes, You are right! I would NEVER be able to keep a secret!

    But whoever made the 'anonymous' comment about me having something to do with it….I'm pretty sure I know who this is and he's just upset that he's going out of business.

    And if it's someone else, he or she just made me chuckle. Please get a life Mr. Anonymous, if you have any comments that you would like to say to me face to face, you know where I live!
