"Bethanne Bahler, a 24-year-old volunteer from Wabash, Ind., was with a group of about 25 volunteers visiting a tourist area in Jamaica in 1974 when she disappeared. Her body was found floating in the water near a small waterfall.
 
  
Peace Corps records conclude she "slipped on rocks while crossing cascade."

==Description of Service ==
 +
Christine Claypoole worked as a Rural Community Development volunteer in Benin, West Africa, primarily focusing on health. She did six weeks of training in rural South Carolina (Penn Center) on animal husbandry and agriculture then did three months of training in Pagala, Togo focusing on health, language and culture. Her site was an hour south of Parakou.  
  
"No one saw her fall, so no one knows exactly what happened," said Richard Follstad, who was with the group of volunteers that day.
+
==Lessons Learned==
  
Follstad believes Bahler likely fell, but when asked if he would rule out assault, he said, "No. Jamaica is a violent country." A volunteer who was a friend of his was raped the same year, Follstad said, and once he had to use a tire iron to ward off a man threatening him with a machete at a gas station.

==About Christine Claypoole Today ==

Currently she works in international public health as the Deputy Director, International Division of John Snow, Inc. located in Boston. She also serves on the board of the Boston Area RPCV group.
  
In a written response, the Peace Corps says it has no additional records on Bahler's death.

Twenty days after Bahler’s death, a 24-year-old volunteer died in Afghanistan, and the explanation by the Peace Corps was nearly identical...."
