Va. Hunter Found Dead in Safety Harness

Posted: Updated:

SMITHFIELD, Va. (AP) - The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says a Norfolk man has died while hunting in Isle of Wight County.

Sixty-one-year-old Kevin Stanley Beatty was found hanging from his safety harness on Friday night west of Smithfield.

Relatives had called the property owner after Beatty didn't return home.

Department spokesman Lee Walker says it appears Beatty may have been climbing down from the stand when a ladder broke.

Beatty's body has been sent to a medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
