The Brewster County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of 31-year-old Errol Zane Trinkley of San Benito, Texas, whose body was found in a rugged part of South Brewster County on Sunday.
In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said Trinkley was found in a “rough, shallow canyon” west of State Highway 118. Authorities believe Trinkley left his vehicle, walked to the edge of a 50-foot cliff and somehow fell, landing on the rocks below.
The death is being investigated as an accident. The cause of death is believed to be a fatal head injury, though the sheriff’s office said an autopsy has not been ordered, pending further investigation.
