Dave Legeno, who played Fenrir Greyback, died while hiking in Death Valley. He was fifty years old. TMZ reports that his body was found in "an area so remote a CHP helicopter had to be called in to remove it."
Our thoughts are with Mr. Legeno's family at this difficult, sad time.
This is very sad but it is easy for people to underestimate the dangers of overheating the body. At least three soldiers on active training in the Brecon Beacons in Wales died from lack of water whilst travelling with heavy packs in exceptionally hot weather for the UK a couple of years ago. Dehydration interferes with brain function, incorrect decisions are made and collapse ensues.
It seems no one knew he went for the hike. Not a good practice.
My sympathies to his family.
It seems that he made the proverbial bad decision to go on this ‘hike’ alone… As it has been mentioned many times before, there is a good reason they call it Death Valley… You should never venture there alone…
