Hunter found dead near Boner Ranch
Search and Rescue officials found the body of a Pennsylvania man near
Boner Ranch last week. He has been identified as 59-year-old Gary E. Whitsel
of York Township, Penn.
Niobrara County Undersheriff Cary Gill said Whitsel was on a hunting trip
before he allegedly fell off his ATV, apparently suffering a fatal heart
attack near Boner Ranch. Search and Rescue officials discovered Whitsel's
body roughly 40 yards away from his still-running ATV, which was stuck on a
rough patch of dirt.
Niobrara County Coroner Lisa Mellott said an official cause of death is
to be determined.
