Hunting Trip Turns Deadly

Monroe County

Sep 25, 2005

A man is in custody after a La Crosse teen was shot to death while on a hunting trip in Monroe County on Saturday.

Monroe County Sheriff Peter Quirin tells News 19, the suspect is originally from Milwaukee, but recently moved up to Monroe County. Quirin would not release the suspect's name, but he did say he is expected to be charged with homicide on Tuesday.

The name of the victim is also being withheld, but Quirin tells News 19 that he was taking pictures in the woods off Abbottsford Avenue in Little Falls, Wisconsin when the shooting occurred. He was part of a hunting group, but he was not armed at the time. Quirin says initial investigation reveals that the victim did not know the suspect.

The death was discovered after the victim's family called the Sheriff's department Saturday night because they could not find the teen. The Sheriff's department then took search dogs out to the woods and found the teen just before 10pm Saturday night.

The State Crime Lab took the victim's body to Madison for an autopsy.
