Missing Hunter Found Dead In Colchester

COLCHESTER, Conn. (AP) – State police are investigating the death of a hunter whose body was found in a wooded area in Colchester, but they do not suspect foul play.

Police say they found the body of 46-year-old Teejay Wisiewski on Wednesday morning near the base of a tree that holds a stand often used by hunters. His rifle was slung over his shoulder.

Friends of the Colchester man reported him missing Tuesday when he did not return home from a hunting trip. Police launched an extensive search to find him.

The Chief State’s Medical Examiner’s Office plans to conduct an autopsy.
