THAILAND – January 23,2014; The body of an American woman in her 20s traveling alone in Thailand and missing for five days was found over the weekend in a national park, apparently trampled by elephants.

Lily Glidden’s body was so badly damaged that authorities immediately came to the startling conclusion after finding her January 18 following a manhunt that brought in 70 people.

She was found in Kaeng Krachan National Park, a preserve famous for its elephants, and authorities believe she was photographing them when she was killed.

Police sent the body to a forensic institute in the capital to determine the cause of death, he said.

The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok confirmed the death, but gave no details.

Kaeng Krachan is the largest national park in Thailand, covering nearly 32,300 square feet of forest. It is 124 miles southwest of Bangkok.

Woradet said the Glidden was alone when she left a camping ground in the park.

Looking at the pictures she took in her camera, we see a lot of animals, birds, snakes, lizards,’ Woradet said. ‘We assumed she wanted to take pictures of elephants because that’s what the Kaeng Krachan National Park is famous for. We believed she wanted to find them and take some photos.
