Man found dead where his son was killed by train day before
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Flagstaff police found the body of a 47-year-old man lying in the snow a day after his 28-year-old son was struck and killed by a train just up the road, authorities said Friday.
Authorities are still working to figure out if the father and son were together when Travis Haudley was hit and killed by a train on Wednesday. Initial reports said there were two people standing between the eastbound and westbound tracks, but police say officers were unable to find anyone else.
The body of Emerson Haudley was found on Thursday at a nearby tunnel.
Investigators are still seeking footage from cameras on the BNSF Railway train, which they hope will help determine whether the men were traveling together and what led to the death of Emerson Haudley, said Flagstaff Police Sgt. Charles Hernandez.
There were no signs of trauma involved in the father’s death, but authorities say cold overnight temperatures are believed to have contributed.
