Police: teenager killed while turkey hunting
May 1, 2009

WHEELOCK, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a 17-year-old from Lyndon Center was shot and killed by his father Friday morning while the two were turkey hunting in the town of Wheelock.

Police say Jacob Kadamus was shot with a shotgun after his father, 45-year-old Kevin Kadamus, fired at what he believed was a turkey.

A preliminary investigation found the Jacob Kadamus left his original hunting area and crossed into his father’s area.

Police say that when rescue personnel arrived at about 6 a.m. they found Kevin Kadamus trying to help his son, but Jacob died at the scene of the shooting.

Game Wardens and police are investigating. Once the investigation is finished, the case will be turned over to the Caledonia County state’s attorney’s office.
