Several have asked the mile marker of where the attack happened. It was at 19 1/2 mile marker, which is about 2 miles from the Jennifer Ewing memorial.
Hearing this story of yet another woman being attacked on the Silver Comet Trail, brings back those feelings (at least for me) when I learned about Jennifer Ewing being killed in 2006. Senseless act this time where the woman was air-lifted b/c she was beaten so badly.
<<<This is the bridge where the attack happened.>>>
If you are out on the SCT…especially any women….PLEASE be incredibly cautious and do not hesitate to call 911 for anything that seems suspicious. Obviously, someone jumping out from the woods is impossible to see or anticipate.
Not being out there alone is THE BEST approach.
See ya on the road,
