UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Authorities now say a former Wisconsin doctor fell to his death in the Colorado mountains, after he got separated from his hiking partners. A county coroner said yesterday that 39-year-old James McGrogan died from head trauma and other injuries. It was ruled an accident.
McGrogan was a hospital emergency room physician in Beloit and Stoughton from 2006 until just recently, when he moved to Indiana to work in a hospital E-R in Mishawaka. McGrogan disappeared March 14th, when he drifted away from a group that was hiking to a back-country hut. His party searched for five days, but couldn't find him.
Skiers found McGrogan's body last Thursday north of Vail Colorado.
