Missing Gillette Woman’s Cause Of Death Revealed

The local coroner declared that a Gillette woman who vanished last month died unintentionally from hypothermia.

On March 23, Tami Sturgeon, 55, went shed hunting with her spouse John in the untamed Yellow Hammer Buttes region, which is roughly 6 miles southeast of Gillette. In order to look for Sturgeon’s misplaced phone, the two parted ways, according to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office.

At 6:55 p.m. that night, her spouse contacted dispatch to report Sturgeon missing as she had failed to return to their adjacent car.

Campbell County Coroner Paul Wallem told Cowboy State Daily on Tuesday that Sturgeon most likely passed away that evening.

“There’s good evidence of hypothermic death, no evidence of injury or foul play,” Wallem recalled in Rapid City, South Dakota, following Sturgeon’s autopsy. “(It’s) ruled an accidental death due to hypothermia.”

Searched Conducted For Days

Prior to discovering Sturgeon at the mouth of a ravine at 4:22 p.m. on Thursday, search and rescue workers discovered a cigarette butt and a pair of gloves in the vicinity, according to a report released by Campbell County Sheriff Scott Matheny last week.

It appears that she had crossed a busy road before arriving at the untamed region of sagebrush where she was discovered.

The thin down coat that Sturgeon was wearing was covered with a cotton sweatshirt that was “soaked,” according to Matheny, who spoke with Cowboy State Daily on Tuesday. It rained a lot the night she vanished.

The sheriff claimed that when officers met with Sturgeon’s spouse, he was drenched in water as well. Throughout the five-day hunt, several agencies sent help to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office.

Last week, Matheny expressed gratitude to the volunteers from Ellsworth Air Force Base in Rapid City, South Dakota, as well as volunteers from Crook, Johnson, Sheridan, Weston, Washakie, Natrona, and Weston counties for their assistance and resources.

A search had been carried out from the air by a Black Hawk chopper fitted with thermal optics. In the days that followed, multiple grid searches of the region where Sturgeon was found were aided by over fifteen volunteers with experience in search and rescue operations.

Matheny added, “It’s a sad situation, and our sincerest condolences go to the family.”
