Kansas City Woman Dies after Fall at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park

(Reynolds County) Missouri state park rangers say an 18-year-old Kansas City woman who fell to her death last weekend at a state park in Reynolds County was in an area that is off-limits to visitors.

Witnesses say Mariah Schramm climbed a bluff at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park on Saturday afternoon.

She was planning to jump into the water but she slipped and fell against a rock, then landed in the water on some rocks.

Investigators say there were “No Trespassing” signs in that area of the park.

Officials say it is okay to swim there but not okay to climb the bluffs.
