Whitefish Woman Dies After Apparent Fall from Hunting Stand
The Flathead County sheriff's department says a 44-year-old Whitefish
woman whose body was found outside her house died after she apparently fell
out of a hunting stand.
Sheriff Mike Meehan says Jeanette McNamara's husband reported her missing
at about 8 a.m. Monday and a few minutes later called back to say he'd found
her body about 75 yards from their home.
The sheriff says alcohol was a factor in the 16-foot fall, which
authorities say was accidental. McNamara's body has been taken to the state
crime lab in Missoula for an autopsy.
She leaves behind her husband and three teenage children.
