A 52-year-old Lee Township man died in a hunting accident Tuesday
evening on state land off West Olson Road.
Edward Planer was
found underneath his tree stand by family members who went looking
for him after he failed to return after dark, the Midland County
Sheriff’s Office reports. He had headed out to his tree stand, which
was about 30 feet up, in the 250 block of West Olson Road at 5:30
p.m. He was found about 9:40 p.m.
The sheriff’s office
investigation indicates Planer fell from his tree stand and died as
a result of his injuries. An autopsy is planned for later today to
determine the exact cause of death. The case remains under
investigation pending autopsy results.
