" Denise Blake of Greencastle, Pa., had gone fishing with her husband, also a volunteer, and according to the Peace Corps, she "slipped on rocks into rapids while fishing."

Her husband, John Blake, said he was 50 feet from her and didn't see her fall in. A cook fishing with them was even closer to her, but Blake said he never got a chance to talk to the cook. Blake was taken out of the area the same day and out of the country within 48 hours, he said.

Denise Blake's family, according to Peace Corps records, questioned the official explanation."
