National Park Service wants public’s help in Blue Ridge Parkway murder investigation

The National Park Service is asking for the public’s help after a Rhode Island father of two mysteriously turned up dead in North Carolina. 

Josue Calderon, 33, was found Oct. 9 along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Blowing Rock after a park visitor alerted officials to the sight of a body. 

“An autopsy conducted by the North Carolina State Medical Examiner’s Office determined cause of death to be homicide,” the National Park Service said in a statement.

It added that investigators are now looking for any information, photographs or videos from those who traveled past the Yadkin Valley Overlook that day, where Calderon’s body was located. 

Calderon’s family said he didn’t own a car and aren’t sure how he ended up more than 800 miles away from his home of Providence, R.I., according to WLOS.
