PA Rape-Case Witness Killed While Hunting
By Dave Hurteau
Speaking of “hunting accidents” that may not be hunting accidents . . . from Lebanon Daily News:
A central Pennsylvania woman who police said was shot to death while hunting Saturday was to be the main witness in a rape trial next month.
State police said Monday that the death of 21-year-old Racheal Lynn Perryman of Port Matilda is being investigated by the state police, county coroner and state Game Commission. . . .
Prosecutor Stephen Sloane said the charges in the rape case will probably be withdrawn as a result of Perryman's death.
