Brick, you didn't read the entire article. There were two assaults, one at
the Shell gas station and one at Kennedy Meadows. The same guy did them
both, and admitted it after being arrested.

The article you posted doesn't match the description you gave.
The attack in the article was was not in Kennedy Meadows, it was in a gas
station in Pearsonville, on HWY 395, the highly traveled road between
Mammoth Lakes, and Los Angeles. The victim in the article was an employee of
the gas station, not a visitor from Florida.
It is a shame that he was attacked, but i'm glad he is OK, and that they
caught the perp.

friend through the Florida Trail Association. Russ (age 67) had driven his
truck with slide-in camper from Orlando to Kennedy Meadows to acclimate
before his permitted hike of the John Muir Trail. He was so excited about
this hike and trip, even being thrilled that he had a camping permit for
Kennedy Meadows. He is okay, but had to have more than 100 stitches. His
girlfriend here reports that he's elated because he survived the attack.
Not sure yet if he's still going to try the hike.
