A tourist apparently trampled to death by elephants in Thailand was a woman from New York state.
The US State Department said yesterday that she was 24-year-old Lily Glidden, who was from a small village named Freeville.
Park rangers in Thailand found her body on January 18, five days after she had left alone from a campsite in Kaeng Krachan National Park in the western province of Petchaburi.
Ms Glidden graduated from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts in 2012 with a biology degree and was interested in animals and the outdoors. Tufts says it is saddened by news of her death.
The authorities in Thailand say her severe injuries led them to believe she was attacked by elephants.
They say there were numerous pictures of animals on her camera.
