Halifax skydiver's death ruled probable suicide

Dave Brown's death has been ruled a probable suicide. (Submitted)

The death of a champion Canadian skydiver whose body was found beneath a cliff in eastern Utah has been ruled a probable suicide.

Dave Brown, who grew up in Halifax, vanished on June 29, shortly after leaving his trailer in Moab, Utah.

His remains were found by a hiker four months later on the outskirts of the town in terrain so rough a police detective had to scramble on hands and feet to reach the body.

Moab police chief Mike Navarre said Tuesday that medical examiners believe the 37-year-old killed himself.

Navarre noted that he was reluctant to accept the finding of probable suicide without a note or hard proof. But he said Brown was going through a divorce, had financial problems and after dissolving his own skydiving business moved cross-country to live in a trailer on property of the owner of Skydive Moab.

Brown's shattered remains showed no sign of foul play, he said.

"There's no bullet, no knife scrape. He went off a ledge," Navarre said.

"Whether he jumped or fell off the edge, I don't know."
