HUNTER KILLS ANOTHER HUNTER AND THEN PARTIES

Sept. 30, 2005

According to Sheriff Pete Quirin of Monroe County, Wisconsin, Seth Hammes was killed by a 22-caliber rifle while he was out bow and arrow hunting. He had been shot in the pelvis and then in the heart. As he was using his camcorder at the time of the killing, he recorded 24-year old Russell Schroeder in a nearby field.

The police found the camcorder near Hammesís body and were able to identify Schroeder. Both Hammesís screaming and Schroederís promise that he would get help were recorded. Schroeder is facing 85 years in prison. He allegedly went to a party after killing Hammes without calling for help as he had promised.
