Here's a link to the actual spot they found him and the car, the car is still showing in the Google earth view if you zoom in:

Interesting story.
Definitely not the 1st death out there I'm sure. I was witness to 2 other deaths in the Basin area over the past 12 years.
Northwest Az. can be a very inhospitable place. And then , there are times when it seems a bit like heaven.

That whole area was an abandoned community / commune that fell apart years ago. There are some remnants buildings still left standing, Im sure you have seen. There is another abandoned commune up on garnet mountain not to far from there up in the hills east of pierce ferry road. Closer to Gold Basin near the Temple bar back road and greggs hideout road there is a really old miners cabin tucked against the side of hill in great condition...
