Jefferson man found dead in MT

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Officials in southwestern Montana have identified a man whose body was found by snowshoers in Madison County.

Madison County Sheriff David Schenck says an autopsy determined 47-year-old Chris Andrew Karantinos of Jefferson, S.D., took his own life.

Snowshoers found Karantinos' body at about 9 a.m. Sunday in the Beehive Basin, a backcountry ski and snowshoeing area near Big Sky, southwest of Bozeman. At the time, Schenk said it appeared the man had fallen from cliff.

Schenck said many questions about Karantinos' death remain unanswered, but there was no sign of foul play.

A Gallatin County deputy continues to investigate Karantinos' death.
