A woman in Owen County is dead after she was apparently accidentally shot with a crossbow.
The incident happened Sunday. Police say Yvetta Reffitt, 59, of Martin, KY, was hunting on a farm in Owen County when the incident occurred. Reffitt had been dropped off to hunt by herself at 6:45 a.m. When Reffitt did not return for lunch, members of her hunting group began looking for her and found her at approximately 11:30 a.m. Reffitt was deceased when she was found.
Preliminary investigation points to the crossbow shot, along with pre-existing medical conditions, as the causes of Reffitt's death.
Police continue to investigate.
