More details have come out about the Indian nationals Vishnu Viswanath and Meenakshi Moorthy who fell to their deaths. A woman who was at Yosemite National Park on Sunday recalled seeing Moorthy.

However, what is strange is that the woman only saw Moorthy without her husband. She even took a picture that featured the wife in the background.

This past weekend, Drea Rose Laguillo and her boyfriend Sean Matteson were at Taft Point. They were there just after 5 p.m.

Laguillo realized that she might have taken the last image of Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, who wasn’t with her husband, Vishnu Viswanath, 29, at the time. The couple fell 800-ft to their deaths.

She shared that she might have a rough idea of when the pair likely went over the edge of the cliff. Laguillo unknowingly captured Moorthy in her photo.

Her photo taken at 5:11 p.m. showed Moorthy with her pink-hairdo in the background at Taft Point. Laguillo recalled:

“There were only a few people there that day, the three slack-liners, us, the couple that passed and a group of four people - two of which were taking wedding photos.”

She also revealed:

“The person taking the photos contacted us this morning and said that [Viswanath and Moorthy] were there after dark.”

However, no one actually saw Viswanath with his wife. Laguillo shared that Moorthy was alone the entire time she was in the area that afternoon.

She also remembered that the blogger wasn’t wearing any makeup and didn’t have a backpack. Laguillo just figured that Moorthy was there to watch the sunset.

She shared that the area got dark quickly and it wasn’t safe to be there after 7 p.m. Her speculation of their deaths was that one of them likely fell and the other went down trying to save them.

The couple’s funeral was set to take place in the US where the pair were staying for the time being. Family member Jishnu Viswanath said their bodies were not in a condition to be flown back to India.

The couple, who also had a blog, had traveled to Vermont, Arizona, New Mexico, San Francisco, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Big Sur, Baltimore, Manhattan, Holland, and India this year.

They met in 2009 and got married five years later.
