I think people (especially women) hiking in no mans land should carry a lethal weapon, not just bear spray. You just never know what kind of crazy person (bank robber etc.) could be in the woods. A knife on the belt would likely be suitable, however would be useless if faced with a gun.
Terrible tragedy, a reminder to all, not to trust strangers in the woods 100%, and be vigilante.
