TX: Investigation continues in teen's death

Investigation continues in teen's death

December 24, 2008 

YOAKUM - Deputies are investigating how an apparent hunting accident that killed a 16-year-old girl Monday happened. Kirstin Wenske died of a gun shot to the head, Justice of the Peace George Robinson said. He will rule on whether or not the death was accidental after DeWitt County Sheriff's deputies complete their investigation, he said.

Witnesses were interviewed by deputies Monday night at the scene, but investigators will talk to them again starting Wednesday, Chief Deputy John Oglesby said.

All investigators know now is Kirstin died during night time hog hunting trip on a ranch southwest of Yoakum off Farm-to-Market Road 3010, Oglesby said.
