MS: Teen dead after apparent hunting accident

Teen dead after apparent hunting accident

December 19, 2010

NATCHEZ — An apparent hunting accident claimed the life of a 19-year-old Natchez resident early Sunday morning.

According to reports from Adams County Coroner James Lee, Deltaurus Holmes, 806 Lower Woodville Road, was pronounced dead at 10:13 a.m. at Natchez Community Hospital from apparent gunshot wounds to the head and abdomen.

Lee said Holmes was hunting on a neighbor or friend’s property around Green Acres and Eagle Nest Road in Natchez.

No arrests were made, but Lee said he is performing an autopsy because it is state law if a gunshot is involved.

“This is sad for the whole community,” he said. “It is a tragedy anyway you look at it, especially since it is around the holidays.” .
