Scott Haworth, forty-six, of Chicopee was discovered by hikers about 4 p.m. Saturday about a quarter-mile from the Round Pond trailhead on Route 73 in Keene. He was about three hundred feet off the trail.
Haworth, an experienced hiker, was last seen on September 5 at Valley Grocery in Keene Valley. His car was later found at the Round Pond Trail parking area. An extensive search of the area and various trails by forest rangers and State Police had failed to locate Haworth.
An autopsy was conducted today by Dr. C. Francis Varga, who determined the cause of death to be asphyxiation from hanging. The death has been ruled a suicide.
