Forest Lakes, AZ; Thirty six year old Casey Frazier of Mesa, Arizona died on Saturday, August 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. after falling a distance of approximately 200 feet off of the Mogollon Rim in an area that is located about two miles west of Woods Canyon Lake.

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Deputy who is stationed in the Forest Lakes Community was dispatched to this incident along with the Heber Overgaard Fire Department. Upon the Deputy’s arrival, and with the assistance of medical personnel who were on scene, the determination was made that Mr. Frazier died from injuries he sustained as a result of the fall.
