Re: Wapiti shelter

When I hiked last year, I stayed at Wapiti shelter. I didn't see any
memorial information about the two hikers, but I knew about the area's
history from reading "Murder on the Appalachian Trail". It certainly is
a lovely area leading up to the shelter; there is a large pond about 500
yards before you get to the shelter. The shelter is quite nice also, it
seemed it was made out of split logs. A somewhat typical AT shelter, maybe
a little cleaner looking. Most of the hikers did not know what had
happened in the area until I told them the story.
I do not know this story and am curious. Can anyone help me out?
