MARIN

Mt. Tam hikers both died accidentally

Two hikers who died a few days apart in the same area of Mount Tamalpais both died accidentally, one from fall injuries and the other from hypothermia, the Marin County sheriff's department said Tuesday.

Marie Sanner, a 50-year-old Mill Valley resident, and Magdalena Glinkowski, a 33-year-old Menlo Park resident, were both found dead in April after failing to return home from hikes.

The two deaths, occurring within a six-day span and about a mile apart near Panoramic Highway, generated widespread and lingering fears of a possible serial attacker on the mountain.

But authorities said at the time that there was no immediate sign of foul play, and the conclusion remained the same after autopsies, toxicology tests and further investigation.

The findings for both women were the result of a lengthy investigation by sheriff's detectives and their counterparts in the coroner's division. Investigators found no connection between the women.
