Game Wardens Continue To Investigate Fatal Shooting In Hebron
Game wardens returned Thursday to the scene of a hunting incident in Hebron that led to the death of a local woman.
Wardens, accompanied by members of the Attorney General’s Office, worked to determine what led up to the shooting death of Karen Wrentzel, 34, of Hebron, according to a news release Friday from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
The Maine Warden Service said Wrentzel was shot and killed by a hunter at about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28.
Wardens believe she was shot by a 38-year-old Hebron man, who was hunting with his father. The names of the two hunters have not been released.
Family members said the incident occurred on Wrentzel’s private land while she was digging for gemstones.
Cpl. John MacDonald, spokesman for the warden service, said a decision on whether any charges will be filed may be announced early next week.
