Her Name is Dorothy Dow: White Great-Grandmother Set on Fire by Five Blacks in Violent Georgia Home Invasion Passes Away


“I’m sorry this happened to you.”
It happened not far from where the fictional events of the early seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead are set: a post-apocalyptic zombie nightmarish landscape is merely fiction, but what happened in Grantville (roughly 38 miles from Atlanta city limits) in early August 2016 represents a scenario the heroes of our race knew was the real horror story.

The five black participants in the murder (lynching?) of 83 year-old white great grandmother Dorothy Dow: Individuals more fearsome than the zombies in The Walking Dead
The type of horror John Brown, Nat Turner, and the participants in the Revolution of San Domingo brought to western civilization.
Dorothy Dow was a white great-grandmother who lived a full life in a small southern town in what is soon-to-be classified as suburban Atlanta (because white people continue abandoning cities close to Atlanta with the advancement of the black undertow).
On August 2, 2016, five black people (three black males and two black females) broke into her home in Granville, assaulted her, and set her on fire. Since the news of this story broke, I’ve checked the local papers/affiliates in Atlanta knowing—inevitably—Dorothy Dow’s health would eventually fail her.
Today, Dorothy Dow died from the horrific assault she dared survive and heroically strugglde to live from for almost an entire month. [Great-grandmother beaten, burned in her home dies weeks after attack, WSB-TV, August 29, 2016]:
An elderly woman who was beaten and burned inside her Meriwether County home has died weeks after the attack, the county’s coroner confirmed to Channel 2 Action News.
Dorothy Dow, 83, was lying in her bed when three men and a woman kicked in her back door and attacked her in early August, according to police.

Rest in Peace, Dorothy Dow: Because of your tenacity, your desire for life in the face of death, we know your story
“These suspects began to demand money from Miss Dow. She pleaded with them that she didn’t have any money. They began to brutally beat her,” Sheriff Chuck Smith said.  The family said Dow’s right and left arms were broken, and she had cuts and bruises all over her face.
The sheriff said the robbers then poured a flammable liquid on the victim and lit it. Dow did everything she could to survive and call for help.
“She remembered she had a gallon of water she filled her breathing machine with. With those broken hands, she took that top off the gallon of water and poured it on her head to put out the flames,” said her daughter-in-law, Beth Dow.
Dorothy Dow then managed to crawl to another room to get her cellphone and call 911.
She was in the hospital in critical condition for weeks and died Saturday afternoon. “That part’s not real. We still can’t put our hands around…that she was murdered,” Dow said.
Justin Pierce Grady, 38, Cortavious Deshun Heard, 18, Shanquavious Keontrell Cameron, 17, Mina Christine Ellery, 17, and Angel Latrice Harmon, 17, are all facing multiple charges in connection to the attack.
“I can’t imagine being one of their mamas, and know that your child has done this,” Dow said.
Police believe the motive was robbery. They say Dorothy Dow owned a blueberry farm and would pay locals cash to pick the berries. Some of the attackers were former employees.
“I would love to talk to them and ask ‘Why? Why did you do this?’ I do want them to be punished,” Dow said.
Dow said police assured the family charges against the suspects will be upgraded if her mother-in-law died.
Dorothy Dow was murdered by five blacks not far from where the fictional events of The Walking Dead occur: in fact, the makeshift city where the evil Governor lords over in Season 3 (real-life, it’s downtown Senoia, Georgia) isn’t more than 15 miles away.
I’ve become increasingly convinced the intense anti-white propaganda we are all exposed to on a 24/7/365 basis—from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep—and the aracial programming (meaning white people are not allowed to have racial interests of their own, save self-immolation) forced upon us with increasing intensity will dissipate almost immediately in the near future.
What I’m not sure of is:
  1. What event(s) produces this momentary panacea…
  2. … If this sudden awakening produces the necessary fortitude to do what is necessary to make this momentary flirtation with racial sanity permanent.
Jim Crow existed for a reason: not out of racial hatred for blacks, but out of necessity to protect white people and the civilization only they could create and which only their posterity could maintain.

How To Select A Presidential Candidate

We probably have no idea how much black mail is used to control politicians. It is astonishing how may degenerates end up in positions of authority these days. As AC postulates it is is very likely this is intentional. Like that scene in the “Godfather” when the senator wakes up in the upscale brothel to find he’s in the room with a dead hooker. But the Mafioso who run the brothel make the problem go away for him. Golly, what good samaritans eh?

=================================================================================================
A man has been arrested and charged after allegedly putting hydrochloric acid inside what is understood to be a lubricant dispenser at a gay club in Sydney’s north-west.
Police said the 62-year-old man went into the Bridge Street premises in Rydalmere on Saturday, filling a dispenser inside a room with the highly corrosive acid.
The ABC understands the club in question is the Aarows club, which describes itself as “Sydney’s gay and bi social club” with “three levels of adult adventure”.
Items in the room had been fitted with alarms after they had previously been tampered with in a similar way, police said.
Though admittedly I have never seen one, I cannot imagine how you would fit an alarm, unnoticed, on a lubricant dispenser. If it is anything like a soap dispenser for your hands, I would think it near impossible to rig, without the tamper-er noticing the alarm.
I suspect they didn’t want to say it, but the room with the lubricant dispenser is probably fitted with hidden cameras, and somebody was watching that room when the guy with the acid made his move. If so, the question would be, what else was happening that was being recorded, and where did the recordings go?
Now ask yourself why Barack Obama, who reportedly frequented the gay scene in Chicago, was so easily whisked up the political ladder, right into the most powerful office in the land. What videos do you think they have on him?
I would bet I could be a governor in five years, if I would just engage in child molestation in a venue which would allow it to be videotaped.

IRS doesn’t tell 1 million taxpayers that illegal immigrants stole their Social Security numbers

http://media.washtimes.com.s3.amazonaws.com/media/image/2016/08/30/JohnKoskinen.jpg

The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.
Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled — and fell woefully short anyway.
As a result, most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.
“Taxpayers identified as victims of employment-related identity theft are not notified,” the inspector general said.
The report alarmed lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who were shocked that the IRS had gone for so long without fixing the issue.
“It is stunning that the IRS has chosen to aid and abet identity thieves for so long instead of protecting the innocent victims of the theft,” said Sen. Daniel Coats, Indiana Republican.
Victims’ numbers are stolen by illegal immigrants who need to give employers a valid Social Security number in order to get a job. Employers are prohibited from probing too deeply into numbers, even when they suspect fraud.
But the IRS learns of the scam when the illegal immigrants file their taxes using a special Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) the agency doles out chiefly to illegal immigrants as a way of making sure they’re paying taxes even if they’re not supposed to be in the U.S.
Between 2011 and 2015 the agency flagged nearly 1.1 million returns where someone appeared to have stolen a valid Social Security number, the inspector general said.
The IRS did not have any new comment on the findings, instead referring reporters to an official response filed with the inspector general, in which the agency insisted it’s making progress.
Karen Schiller, commissioner for the IRS’ small business and self-employed division, said the 2014 pilot program was helpful, even if it didn’t completely solve the notification problem, and said the agency will try to alert all taxpayers beginning next year.
“As we continue to battle and make progress against all strains of identity theft in the tax ecosystem, we recognized that we were missing an important partner in this effort — the taxpaying public,” said Ms. Schiller, who had the task of answering the inspector general.
She also vowed to figure out a system to let the Social Security Administration (SSA) know if someone’s number has been stolen.
Under the 2014 pilot program, the IRS did notify some 25,000 taxpayers whose SSNs were pilfered. The notice they received told them to contact credit-monitoring agencies to try to head off any more damage to their personal finances.
But the IRS said it’s prevented by federal law from telling taxpayers who stole their identity.
The IRS says its role is not to enforce immigration laws but rather to collect taxes. The agency issues ITINs to ensure that unauthorized workers can still file tax returns, even if they aren’t supposed to be working in the U.S.
Taxpayers who use an ITIN are eligible for some tax credits, particularly for their children who are U.S. citizens.
Congressional Republicans have long complained to the IRS that it is protecting illegal immigrants from discovery by allowing the use of ITINs but failing to share the information with other agencies.
Mr. Coats, who has written legislation requiring victims to be notified, even confronted IRS officials about their lax behavior at a hearing in April.
“All of us can agree that victims need to know that they’re victims, and need to know that an agency of the federal government, whether it’s IRS or whether it’s SSA, or both, ought to have some ability to talk to each other,” Mr. Coats said.
IRS Commissioner John G. Koskinen told Mr. Coats at the hearing that in many of the cases, friends or relatives lent their Social Security numbers to the unauthorized workers, and already know their information is being fraudulently used.
He also said the agency struggled to come up with a solution that wouldn’t chase illegal immigrants away from filing their taxes altogether.
“Obviously, priority for taxpayers and the IRS is collecting those taxes,” he said.
Mr. Koskinen testified at the time that it may take new legislation from Congress to let his agency inform taxpayers they’d been the subject of identity theft.
But the hiccup in communicating with the Social Security Administration seems like it should be easier to solve. The inspector general, however, said the IRS didn’t have a system set up to make sure SSA always knew of the fraud.
In some cases IRS employees said they sent a notice, but the Social Security Administration had no record of it. In other cases, it appears the IRS didn’t even bother to make a notification.
“The lack of a formal process to ensure that the SSA is notified of income not associated with an innocent taxpayer is problematic because this notification is essential to ensure that victims’ Social Security benefits are not affected,” the inspector general said.

Media Celebrate Obama’s 10,000-Refugee Target Being Reached

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/vdare-live/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/29133647/SyrianRefugeeFamilyJouriyehToSanDiego.jpg


The White House is thrilled that it managed to speed-dump 10,000 Syrian refugees into America’s cities and towns, even though FBI Director Comey warned in Congressional testimony last fall that they could not be screened because the US government has “no record of them.”
For a media celebration of Obama’s goal being reached, the Associated Press focused on a rather sketchy family from Homs. The father, Nadim Fawzi Jouriyeh, says he is 49 but looks a lot older, and is characterized as a construction worker having heart ailments — so it sounds like the whole bunch of six will go straight to the welfare office.
At some point, San Diego got the rep as being a soft touch for refugee resettlement, so the extreme diversity pile-on continues. The local Union-Tribune reported last October: County tops in refugee resettlement, referring to the fact that San Diego County has taken the most refugees in the state over the last seven years. The county accepts around 3,000 refugees annually, including persons from the Congo, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Syria, Afghanistan, Burundi, Burma, and Columbia.
Unfortunately, extreme diversity has not worked out that well in the county. The local immigrants were stirred into rage a few years ago when Shaima Alawadi was found dead in her El Cajon home with a note nearby telling the Iraqi refugee to go home. Lefty propagandist Salon wrote five articles railing against American haters and CAIR waved the Islamophobia flag as well, resulting in a lot of bad feeling.
In fact, the murder was a hate-crime hoax created by her husband to cover up his crime. But apologies from the diversity mongers for stirring up various immigrant groups were nil.
Anyway, San Diego is getting still more diversity, and plenty of it.
Oh, and how many Christians are included in the 10,000 horde? you may ask. Even though Syrian Christians face genocide in the Middle East, Obama has focused on importing thousands of unscreenable Muslims into America, despite the obvious danger to this nation and the tribe’s disturbing unwillingness to assimilate in general.
When the total number of Syrians had reached 9,144 a few days agoonly 47 (0.5 percent) were Christian. Regarding the whole refugee cohort for this fiscal year, Muslims outnumber Christians for the first time in a decade: of the total 66,480 refugees, 30,543 (45.94 percent) were Muslims and 28,973 (43.58 percent) were Christians.
As Daniel Greenfield wrote recently, “If you are a member of ISIS, you have a better chance of reaching America than your Yazidi sex slave.”
Does Obama hate Americans? He sure acts like it. A president who cared about the safety of this country would end Muslim immigration entirely.
Nadim Fawzi Jouriyeh is a 49-year-old construction worker with heart ailments and four children to look after.
As if that wasn’t difficult enough, he and his family were enmeshed in the destructive civil war that has left Syria in ruins and killed hundreds of thousands of their countrymen and women.
Now, they are getting a new lease on life.
The Jouriyehs are among the 10,000 refugees fleeing the smoldering Middle Eastern nation and resettling in the United States.
Forced to leave their hometown of Homs, Syria’s third largest city and one which has been placed under siege for months, the Jouriyeh family made their way to Jordan.
On Monday, they will board a plane in Amman bound for the United States, as will hundreds of other Syrians who will round out the target of 10,000 refugees who will be resettled in the country.
When asked by The Associated Press about his sentiments just before beginning a new life in San Diego, Jouriyeh said he is filled with ‘fear and joy, fear of the unknown and our new lives, but great joy for our children’s lives and future.’
The resettlement program focuses on the most vulnerable refugees, including those who were subjected to violence or torture or are sick.
Close to 5 million Syrians have fled civil war since 2011. Most struggle to survive in tough conditions in neighboring countries, including Jordan, which hosts close to 660,000 Syrian refugees.
The intake of refugees from Syria has emerged as a hot-button issue during the US presidential campaign.
Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, has said that an anticipated flood of Syrian refugees admitted to the US by the Obama administration will bring with them a new wave of terror attacks unleashed by Islamist groups.
‘Bad things will happen. A lot of bad things will happen. There will be attacks that you wouldn’t believe, the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting said on a podcast hosted by the National Border Patrol Council.
There will be attacks by the people that are right now coming into our country, because – I have no doubt in my mind,’ Trump predicted.
The Obama administration has committed that by the end of September it will resettle 10,000 Syrians in the United States following a lengthy vetting process overseen by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
That number will likely expand in 2017 unless Trump were to move into the Oval Office.
The administration, for its part, scoffs at the notion that its policy will put the country in danger.
Obama’s top diplomat in Amman said this week that her country is fulfilling a longstanding tradition in opening its doors to the world’s downtrodden.
‘Refugees are the most thoroughly screened category of travelers to the United States, and Syrian refugees are subject to even greater scrutiny,’ said Alice Wells, the American ambassador to Jordan.
Wells said the US has taken in more refugees from around the world over the years than all other nations combined.

Mike Tyson accused of stealing ice cream treat at U.S. Open

http://img-s-msn-com.akamaized.net/tenant/amp/entityid/AAigqZZ.img

Black celebrity privilege.

============================================
According to eyewitness accounts, Mike Tyson snagged an ice cream treat out of a freezer at a Ben and Jerry’s kiosk at the U.S. Open and walked away without paying for it.

Mike Tyson was among the glitterati in attendance at Arthur Ashe Stadium this week to take in some opening-round action at the U.S. Open. And as “Iron Mike” is wont to do from time to time, his antics during his appearance invited some semblance of controversy.
According to eyewitness accounts, Tyson snagged an ice cream treat out of a freezer at a Ben and Jerry’s kiosk and walked away without paying for it.
“I was like, ‘Are you serious? Am I imagining this? (Tyson) was like, ‘I feel like having an ice cream’ and he just took it,” said an unidentified worker, via the New York Post. “What are you going to do, fight him? He’s Mike Tyson.”
The former heavyweight champ’s ice cream treat of choice apparently was a “Half Baked” ice cream bar.
A female employee working the stand reportedly yelled, “Excuse me, are you going to pay for that.” An eyewitness states Tyson ignored her and kept on his way to take in Novak Djokovic’s first-round victory over Jerzy Janowicz.
When said employee asked a higher-up about the incident, the supervisor said, "Oh, it’s Mike Tyson, let it go,” according to a witness.
Tyson’s publicist has since downplayed the incident, saying all the hullabaloo can be chalked up to some confusion on Tyson's part.
“There was a misunderstanding,” Joann Mignano said. “Mike got the ice cream and was going to have the host pay for it as he was running around with his family. He was being pulled in a lot of directions as his daughter, Milan, is a rising tennis star and huge fan of the sport…. His host, David Slade (USTA National Manager), got the money from Mike and has made sure the bill has been taken care of.”
In other words, all’s well that ends well. Tyson got his ice cream bar and the stand got their money. And really, Mike Tyson stealing an ice cream bar at the U.S. Open is a quintessential Tyson tale and deserves inclusion in the expansive pantheon of bizarre Mike Tyson stories.

Streisand: I’ll Leave The Country If Trump Wins

http://www.dailywire.com/sites/default/files/styles/169large/public/uploads/2016/08/ap16135067573644.jpg?itok=BqPQixpn

I wish these people would quit teasing us and hurry up an leave.

============================================
Acclaimed singer Barbra Streisand is joining the list of disgruntled celebrities threatening to leave America if Donald Trump is elected president. She made the comments during an interview with Sydney-based journalist Michael Usher during an Australian news program broadcast on Sunday.
“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it,” Streisand said, referring to Trump. “I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”
A “thrilled” Hillary Clinton supporter, Streisand has spent the last few weeks campaigning for her preferred candidate.
"I'm spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and I would love to meet you there," Streisand stated in an email sent out to Clinton campaign supporters Sunday. “I’m ready to do whatever it takes to help Hillary.”
Parroting feminist rhetoric, the singer added that her experience as a woman in Hollywood has fueled her passion for electing Hillary as president.
“It’s harder to believe the truth: that we have power, and we can use it,” Streisand emphasized in a direct addressed to women yearning to feel “empowered.” “Hillary Clinton is the proof."
The singer has even taken her campaign work to late night television. In a recent appearance with The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon, Streisand sang a duet mocking the billionaire businessman.
In claiming that she’ll leave the country if the Republican candidate is elected in November, she joins the likes of Lena Dunham and Chelsea Handler and others who have eagerly used their celebrity as a tool to push a political agenda.
Here’s a full list of leftist stars, has-beens, loud-mouthed actors, and D-list celebrities who have said they’ll leave America if Trump is elected:
  • Lena Dunham
  • Samuel L. Jackson
  • Miley Cyrus
  • Cher
  • Jon Stewart
  • Raven Symone
  • Natasha Lyonne
  • Omari Hardwick
  • Spike Lee
  • Chloë Sevigny
  • Eddie Griffin
  • George Lopez
  • Al Sharpton
  • Neve Campbell
  • Rosie O'Donnell
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Chelsea Handler

Subway Employee Lets a Pair of Violent Robbers Have it Their Way

http://cdn.bearingarms.com/uploads/2016/08/Screen-Shot-2016-08-29-at-1.10.57-PM.png

A Subway restaurant clerk in Augusta, GA was forced to let a pair of violent robbers ‘have it their way’ after one of the men assaulted her 14-year-old son with a crowbar.
Two men, identified by law enforcement as Cornelius Lamar Harrison, 24, and Howard Maurice Harris, 25, broke into the Subway on the 1600 Block of Gordon Highway intent on robbing the popular fast food chain at approximately 12:30Sunday afternoon.
Richmond County deputies said the two men were armed with crowbars and witnesses said one of the suspects used his weapon to strike a 14-year-old boy in the head, injuring the young man.
That boy’s mother happened to be one of the employees working behind the counter Sunday and this lady was packing more than lunch meat.
Deputies said the woman drew her handgun and fired shots at both of the men, leaving Harrison dead in the store and sending Harris running from the building.
“It’s sad for someone to intimidate somebody with robbery or whatever, but things like this do happen in the world we live in,” said local business owner Robert “Flash” Gordan. “You basically have to be prepared for anything in today’s world. I think most folks have some kind of protection. Why shouldn’t she?”
Harris was apprehended the next day when police responded to a call of a suspicious person at the Courtyard Marriott on Stevens Creek Road. Authorities said he was taken to a nearby hospital for a possible medical episode and had a small quantity of methamphetamine on him. The Sheriff’s Office said Harris told police his name was ‘Brandon Simmons’ but was positively identified as Howard Maurice Harris when deputies ran his fingerprints.
The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office says Harris is accused of felony possession of methamphetamine, aggravated assault and felony murder.

Exposing the Myth of Nordic Socialism

https://pajamasmed.hs.llnwd.net/e1/static/2000511/images/default-og-image.jpg

‘That’s interesting, because in America, among Scandinavians, we have no poverty, either’.

=========================================================
One of Glenn's readers sent him a link to an interesting book on why Nordic socialism is not as wonderful as many would have us believe. The book is entitled Debunking Utopia: Exposing the Myth of Nordic Socialism. From the description:
Left-leaning academics, liberal pop stars such as Bruce Springsteen, and Democrat politicians from Bernie Sanders to Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama all have one thing in common: they are avid admirers of Nordic-style social democracy. The reason is simple. At first glance, Nordic countries seem to have everything liberals want to see in America: equal income distribution, good health, low levels of poverty, and thriving economies, all co-existing with big welfare states. By copying Nordic policies, many in the American left hope to transform America to a similar socialist utopia.
Debunking Utopia Swedish author Nima Sanandaji explains why this is all wishful thinking. Certainly, some aspects of Nordic welfare states, such as childcare provision, merit the admiration of liberals. But overall, it is a unique culture based on hard work, healthy diets, social cohesion and high levels of trust that have made Nordic countries successful. Sanandaji explains how the Nordic people adopted this culture of success in order to survive in the unforgiving Scandinavian climate.He systematically proves that the high levels of income equality, high lifespans and other signs of social success in the Nordics all predate the expansion of the welfare state. If anything, the Nordic countries reached their peak during the mid-twentieth century, when they had low taxes and small welfare states. Perhaps most astonishing are his findings that Nordic-Americans consistently outperform their cousins who live across the ocean. People of Nordic descent who live under the American capitalist system not only enjoy higher levels of income, but also a lower level of poverty than the citizens of the Nordic countries themselves.
Sanandaji's previous writings on the roots of Nordic success have gained media attention around the world and been translated into many languages. Debunking Utopia, which expands on this work, should be read by all liberals and conservatives alike who follow the debate over the future of American welfare. As Sanandaji shows, there is much Americans can learn from both the successes and failures of Nordic-style social democracy.
It reminds me of a reply that Milton Friedman once gave to another economist about the lack of poverty in Sweden:
A Scandinavian economist once said to Milton Friedman, ‘In Scandinavia, we have no poverty’. Milton Friedman replied, ‘That’s interesting, because in America, among Scandinavians, we have no poverty, either’. Indeed, the poverty rate for Americans with Swedish ancestry is only 6.7 per cent: half the US average (US Census).
Leftists always want to point to some so-called utopian society that exists due to government intervention and control but what they call success is usually due to what is mentioned in the above book description: hard work, healthy diets, social cohesion and high levels of trust. Hard work and high levels of trust in our American society is slowly becoming a thing of the past. It's hard for a society to be successful without these traits, but leftists are determined to give it a try.

Ecuadoran (??!!) Yellowstone Park Worker Falls to Her Death

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/vdare-live/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/28210153/YellowstoneFallsFromInspirationPoint.jpg


Is working in this country’s spectacular national parks a job that Americans just don’t want to do? Apparently the government thinks so, judging from the foreigners it promotes to the head of the line.
The recent death of 21-year-old Ecuadoran Estefania Liset Mosquera Alcivar is regrettable, but it does remind us of how Americans are not encouraged to become workers in their own national parks. Yellowstone is very up front about welcoming foreign workers using the visas that Washington has supplied for that purpose when the jobs economy is particularly slim for young citizens.
The recent accidental death is not the first of a foreign worker fatally falling in Yellowstone National Park. In 2012, Maria Sergeyevna Rumyantseva of Kaliningrad, Russia, fell when a loose rock promontory gave way underneath her. She had been hired by Xanterra Parks and Resorts, the park’s concessionaire.
So the Ecuadoran was “socializing” with friends on a canyon rim at 3:15 am. . .
A 21-year-old worker at the Yellowstone National Park plunged to her death early on Friday from the edge of a canyon while socializing with colleagues, park officials said.
Estefania Liset Mosquera Alcivar, a concession employee, was with a small group of coworkers at the rim of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone shortly after 3:15 a.m. when she fell, according to accounts by her companions, the park’s public affairs office said in a statement.
Her body was recovered about four hours later and the incident remains under investigation, the officials said. Alvicar is from Quito, Ecuador.
The incident along with three major wildfires burning in Yellowstone come at the height of the summer tourist season and as officials in both parks prepare for celebrations set for Thursday marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service.
The fires have prompted authorities to close the south entrance to the park, which last month saw an average of more than 2,400 vehicles per day.
Yellowstone, which occupies the northwestern corner of Wyoming and spills over into Idaho and Montana, was the first national park established in the United States and remains one of its most popular.
