Report: Arizona fugitive planned suicide by bear

A convicted killer who escaped from an Arizona prison said after his capture that he had planned to overdose on heroin at Yellowstone National Park and let bears eat him to end the fear and panic he was experiencing while on the lam.

Tracy Province told Mohave County sheriff's Detective Larry Matthews that he had wanted to go up on a mountain, shoot up a gram of heroin and "be bear food." As he was preparing the drug, a voice told him not to go through with the plan, and he changed course in favor of trying to hitchhike to Indiana to see family.

"He called it divine intervention," Matthews wrote in an August report.

Finding oneself inside a bear, Arizona, or Indiana all seem to be equally unpalatable options from this vantage point.

Anyone concerned about the bear.? Likely to have been a federal wildlife regulation violation as well.
