"Bethanne Bahler, a 24-year-old volunteer from Wabash, Ind., was with a group of about 25 volunteers visiting a tourist area in Jamaica in 1974 when she disappeared. Her body was found floating in the water near a small waterfall.
 
  
Peace Corps records conclude she "slipped on rocks while crossing cascade."
+
[[Category: Fallen Volunteers]]
 
+
"No one saw her fall, so no one knows exactly what happened," said Richard Follstad, who was with the group of volunteers that day.
+
 
+
Follstad believes Bahler likely fell, but when asked if he would rule out assault, he said, "No. Jamaica is a violent country." A volunteer who was a friend of his was raped the same year, Follstad said, and once he had to use a tire iron to ward off a man threatening him with a machete at a gas station.
+
 
+
In a written response, the Peace Corps says it has no additional records on Bahler's death.
+
 
+
Twenty days after Bahler’s death, a 24-year-old volunteer died in Afghanistan, and the explanation by the Peace Corps was nearly identical...."
