WI Hunters Buried

By  | 

Three hunters killed in a confrontation with another hunter last weekend in northwestern Wisconsin have been buried.

One man who lost his father and older brother said, "To say they were two peas in a pod is an understatement."

He made the comment during a funeral for both in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The two were among six hunters killed. Two others were wounded.

The sister of a third victim buried Saturday read a poem entitled "Miss Me, But Let Me Go." The reverend who officiated at both funerals urged mourners to take comfort in one another and in their faith in God, saying, "We're drawn together by this really tragic, unexplainable event."

The man accused in the shootings is in jail awaiting formal charges.
