LA CROSSE, Wis. - Seth Hammes was filming in the woods when his camcorder recorded the crack of gunshots, the 17-year-old’s screams and the voice of the alleged shooter, promising help that never came.

Authorities say they might never have learned what happened to Hammes, who later died in the woods.

“But right next to him was the videotape,” Monroe County Sheriff Pete Quirin said Thursday. “That’s when we knew we had a homicide on our hands.”

.....and the fact that the body has gunwounds doesn’t make you know?

Investigators initially believed he had just died in the woods - there was no blood to indicate foul play, and he had been shot with a .22-caliber rifle, which left only small wounds, Quirin said.

And of course, they may not have moved the body at this time. The first people on the scene tend not to be the ones who have the responsibility to do this. That would be more down to the forensic types.
Once they’d viewed the tape, it made it very obvious that he had been shot.

I don’t quite understand why you think this is bad practice…

Probably because I wasn’t paying much attention…...

Instead, authorities say, Schroeder went to a birthday party, home to play video games and then to his job as a custodian at the Army’s Fort McCoy near Sparta.


Bizzare.
