The Lake County Coroner's Office said today that a hunter died of
chest and abdominal injuries over the weekend, when a tree he had
climbed to hunt from fell and landed on him.
Shawn Wirtzberger, 47, of Madison Township, had climbed a dead
tree, a spokeswoman said.
After getting a call that Wirtzberger had not returned home by
Saturday evening, Sheriff's deputies searched woods in Leroy
Township and found his body Sunday morning.
