Police Review Death of Bow Hunter


Star Ledger Staff



Authorities are investigating the death of a 67 -year-old man who was found dead in a tree stand yesterday while bow hunting in a wooded area off of Route 31 in Readington Township (NJ), according to authorities.


The death of the Berkeley Heights man does not appear to be suspicious and is believed to have been from natural causes, said Hunterdon County First Assistant Prosecutor Steven Lember. An autopsy scheduled today, he said.


The man's name was being withheld pending the notification of his family, according to authorities.  The man apparently had been bow hunting yesterday with a companion, who found the man unresponsive around 10 a.m., authorities said.


The companion, who wanted to remain unidentified, drove a short distance on Route 31 from the wooded site to the Hunterdon County Park System office and used a phone there to call 911, said Parks Director John Trontis.  A park ranger returned to the scene with the companion, he said.


An autopsy is scheduled today.
