A 76-year-old Selbyville man died Oct. 22 after an apparent
hunting accident in Bishopville, Md.
According to Candy
Thomson of the Maryland Natural Resources Police, Richard Jenkins
fell from a tree stand while deer hunting.
Thomson said the
tree stand is located just over the state line, about four miles
from Jenkins' home. Jenkins left to go hunting around 6 a.m. and
when he did not return by 4 p.m., his wife asked a friend to check
Thomson said the friend found Jenkins lying on a cement pad at
the foot of the tree stand ladder. Jenkins was not wearing a safety
vest or harness.
