Teenager killed in hunting mishap

Monday, December 6, 2004

Cody Forbes, 13, of Vigo County, was shot and killed Saturday while he and two of his friends were hunting squirrels.

Vigo Co. Sheriff's Department received a 911 call about 9:59 a.m. Saturday from a former neighbor and Forbes family friend at 13324 S. Vandyke Rd.

While the former neighbor's wife reported a shooting had occurred in a wooded area about one-half mile southeast of their residence, her husband brought the boy out of the woods on a four-wheeler and tried to resuscitate him.

Details of the incident are not yet being released by the Conservation Office. An autopsy is scheduled today at Regional Hospital. The shooting is still under investigation.
