Wilson resident Squirrel Rork was found dead Wednesday night of an apparent suicide, according to Teton County Sheriff’s Office. She was 66.

Teton County Coroner Brent Blue said he had not yet determined either the official cause or manner of death.

Rork, a Chicago native, worked as an operating room nurse and later as an alternative healing practitioner, according to her biography on the website for BBS Radio, where she hosted a talk show.

No services are yet set, Valley Mortuary staff said.
