A woman apparently killed herself in a family cemetery near Crossnore School on Wednesday evening, according to Avery County Sheriff Kevin Frye.

“It appears that it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. We are conducting an investigation, but that is all that we are releasing,” Frye said, adding that his office normally doesn’t release information regarding suicides.

GoBlueRidge.com reported that Avery EMS found the woman “gravely injured” at about 7:30 p.m. WINGS Air Rescue arrived in a Christmas tree field lit up by fire trucks and other emergency vehicles to fly the woman to the hosptial.

She died later in the night at Johnson City Medical Center.
