Tramonte, who was visiting Phoenix for the first time from Massachusetts, went hiking with a man on Echo Canyon Trail on July 30.

Her companion, later identified as a Phoenix police officer, said Tramonte became overheated halfway up the trail and she decided to turn around and return to their car. However, when the man returned to the vehicle, he could not find her.

Fire officials reported that Tramonte was found dead outside a home near the mountain. Fire fighters believe she was trying to alert someone in the area before she collapsed.
