LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a hiker who fell to his death at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.
The Clark County coroner identified the hiker Friday as 31-year-old Justin William Manering of Las Vegas.
His cause of death is still pending.
Police say Manering and a group of co-workers had been hiking Thursday evening when he fell about 160 feet from a trail.
Manering was pronounced dead at the scene.
It is still undetermined what caused him to fall.
His mother, Pamela Kight, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he moved to Nevada with his girlfriend five years ago.
She says her son, who was a waiter, was a very outdoorsy person who often hiked at Red Rock Canyon.
