CA: Death of San Luis Obispo hunter ruled accidental

Death of San Luis Obispo hunter ruled accidental

Friday, January 2, 2009
Reported by: Justin Myers

The death of a Central Coast man killed while hunting is being called an accident.

48-year-old Joel Schnackenberg was over due from a hunting trip near his home last month when search and rescue crews found him dead from a single gunshot wound.

The San Luis Obispo County coroner's office said the angle of the bullet lead them to conclude the gunshot was accidental.

Investigators believe a broken trigger may have played a role in the incident.
