NE Ohio hunter suffocates suspended in harness

CARROLLTON, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio deer hunter apparently suffocated when he fell from a tree stand and became suspended in his safety harness 20 ft. off the ground.

Searchers in Carroll County southeast of Canton say the body of 35-year-old Kevin Shaw of Massillon was found early Sunday after his father reported him overdue from an all-day hunting trip.

The Carroll County sheriff's department says the victim's safety harness apparently suffocated him.
